The International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution

The International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution announced that it is expanding the diversity pledge it adopted in 2020 by incorporating the core metric found in the pledge of the Ray Corollary Initiative (RCI). The RCI seeks to increase diversity, equity, and inclusion in the selection of arbitrators, mediators, and other alternative dispute resolution (ADR) neutrals – a goal shared by CPR.

Hon. Shira A. Scheindlin, of Counsel at Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP, former judge on the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York and co-chair of CPR's National Task Force on Diversity noted, "Disputants come from all walks of life and represent every racial, ethnic and gender groups in America. Our panels of neutrals should also. But mediators and arbitrators remain overwhelmingly white and male. This needs to change, and I encourage parties and law firms to sign on to CPR's Diversity Commitment and to work toward meeting the RCI metric in order to achieve more diverse selection of neutrals."
