About the Charter

The CEDR Diversity and Inclusion Mediation Charter is a pledge for those involved in the mediation profession to commit to supporting inclusion and diversity in the commercial profession.

At CEDR, we are committed to improving diversity and inclusion in civil and commercial mediation.  We believe that mediation is best delivered by mediators who represent the full range of society, and that there should be no barriers to entering the profession based on individual characteristics.  We recognise that commercial mediation does not currently have proportionate representation for gender, race and age and we are committed to increasing the diversity of mediator representation to more accurately reflect society. The Charter has been developed to help address this.

The Charter can be read and signed here:
