CIArb International Women's Day 2021

March 8, 2021

Ann Ryan Robertson, CIArb President, will give the opening remarks at CIArb's International Women's Day on March 8, 2021.

The creators of Star Trek dared to imagine a future in which gender and race were non-issues - a future in which anyone could take their place on the bridge and reach (for) the stars. That future is within our grasp, but the path to gender equality in international arbitration is one with many steps. This lecture will reflect on some of the hard-won victories achieved by the pioneers of gender diversity in international arbitration and explore where the remaining challenges lie as we head towards our final frontier - true gender equality. How can the next generation of arbitration leaders and the generations that follow, the 'children' of the gender diversity revolution, make sure that hard-won progress is not lost and keep us moving boldly forward?
