On September 3rd, the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) and the International Council for Commercial Arbitration (ICCA) held a joint webinar on the new Cross-Institutional Task Force's Report on Gender Diversity in Arbitral Appointments and Proceedings.
The Report was officially released on July 28, 2020, and is accessible online at Kluwer Arbitration and on the ICCA website. Following the release, ICCA and ICSID collaborated to ‘introduce’ the Report to the international arbitration community in this virtual event.
During the webinar, White & Case partner and ICCA Governing Board Member Carolyn Lamm and ICSID Secretary-General Meg Kinnear and their fellow panelists provided an overview of the Report's findings and addressed the diverse perspectives of parties, arbitral institutions and co-arbitrators in promoting gender diversity in the field of international arbitration.
