Since 2018, the CEDR Foundation has been working on a major initiative to improve diversity and inclusion in civil and commercial mediation. We believe it is important that commercial mediators reflect the community that they serve.
That’s why the Foundation has liaised with a working group of mediators, lawyers and users of mediation to look at the barriers to diversity for gender, race and age in commercial mediation. Following this, we’ve compiled a report setting out a series of recommendations.
“Through our diversity and inclusion initiatives, CEDR is working to implement active principles into all aspects of our company culture and the wider profession. We are striving to achieve representation in dispute resolution regardless of nationality, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender or age.”
