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.
