    2018 was a landmark year in terms of diversity in international arbitration. ArbitralWomen celebrated its 25th anniversary, and statistics from most major arbitration institutions reveal a clear trend toward increasing the number of women arbitrator appointments.

    Significantly, the ICC International Court of Arbitration reached a historic milestone with the appointment of 176 ICC Court members from 116 countries for its 2018-2021 term, representing complete gender parity of 88 women and 88 men.

    To celebrate these achievements and prepare future action, please join us for cocktails during Paris Arbitration Week.
