CIArb Women in ADR campaign recognised by ArbitralWomen

29 Mar 2019

We are delighted to inform that our CIArb Women in ADR campaign has been very positively received and captured the attention of the other international arbitration organisations. We are profoundly grateful to ArbitralWomen for sharing our campaign on their website and newsletter. It is worth reminding that to celebrate International Women's Day 2019 we interviewed successful female professionals from over 20 jurisdictions with diverse backgrounds and at different stages of their careers. The excellent stories they shared can serve as an inspiration and empowerment for female practitioners around the globe.
