Insights: Publications Corporate Demands May Deliver More Diverse ADR Neutrals

American Bar Association Just Resolutions E-News

Written by Whitney Judson
It is no secret that in many professions around the world, women are greatly underrepresented in professional positions of power and influence and face greater challenges than those faced by men in rising within the professional ranks. Women in the legal profession in particular experience difficulties in becoming partners in law firms, holding general counsel positions in corporations, becoming deans at law schools, and securing positions as judges in the federal and state judiciaries. Women are especially underrepresented as neutrals in arbitrations and mediations, despite the fact that they are equally or more qualified than their male counterparts. While there is no single, perfect solution to issues of diversity in alternative dispute resolution (“ADR”) corporations have the power and influence to effect great change, and must wield this power in a meaningful way.
