CIArb is delighted to present its first podcast. Natalia Otlinger (PR & Engagement Executive) interviewed Amanda Lee FCIArb on the subject of diversity in alternative dispute resolution. Mandy shared her insights into the origins, scale and potential solutions to the problem.

She explained how diversity improves the decision-making process and why decision makers shall be representative of those whose disputes they are resolving. In her summary of the current situation, Mandy referred to the recent statistics and various initiatives undertaken by arbitral institutions and organisations like CIArb, ArbitralWomen and WWA Latam.

She also made a number of practical recommendations and shared useful tips for practitioners pursuing a career in ADR, which can increase their chances of success in this field.

"We are building our online resources so that our members have convenient access to them at any time and place. We are very grateful to Mandy Lee FCIArb for being our first speakers and for her fantastic insights into the problem of diversity in the world of dispute resolution"
