In recognition of the under-representation of women on international arbitral tribunals, members of the arbitration community drew up a pledge (“Equal Representation in Arbitration PLEDGE”) to take action. Alice Fremuth-Wolf is member of the steering committee and took part in the official launch event on 18 May in London. VIAC has already signed the pledge and we would like to encourage you to do the same under http://www.arbitrationpledge.com/. You may also join the ERA Pledge LinkedIn Group.
A few days ago a new feature has been launched on ERA’s webpage. Interested parties may now ask for names of female arbitrators, that fulfil certain required qualifications and will be provided with a list of potential candidates.
