IPBA Arbitration Diversity Pledge
The IPBA has always been an inclusive association that openly welcomes members from all jurisdictions. It is committed to ensuring diversity among its leadership by encouraging a proportionate gender and regional balance. In addition, the changing demographic of our member base has seen more young lawyers joining in recent years and a new committee was formed to provide opportunities for participation in IPBA events and activities.
A large number of our members list arbitration as an area of interest or specialty. In order to promote a fair representation of female and young lawyers to oversee arbitration cases, the Women Business Lawyers Committee has created the “IPBA Arbitration Diversity Pledge”.
We encourage you to read the pledges below, print it out and sign it according to your preference, and hang it in your office to let everyone know that you are also committed to promoting diversity. We hope you will join us in promoting diversity in arbitration.
