LCM has recently taken the Arbitration Pledge (www.arbitrationpledge.com) in support of equal representation in arbitration.
In 2015 members of the international arbitration community drew up a pledge to take action to increase, on an equal opportunity basis, the number of women appointed as arbitrators in order to achieve a fair representation in the first instance – and ultimately full parity.
Its objectives are:
- to improve the profile and representation of women in arbitration; and
- to appoint women as arbitrators on an equal opportunity basis.
Managing Director of LCM, Patrick Moloney, said –
“LCM is committed to supporting the development of international arbitration from all aspects, including the procedures used to engage those practitioners best suited for each arbitration.”
