ArbitralWomen Newsletters offer a variety of information related to our activities and other topics concerning the dispute resolution community. ArbitralWomen’s Board and members report on ArbitralWomen and other dispute resolution events taking place throughout the world. Current examples of the events we organise are the ArbitralWomen SpeedNet events, which are inspired by the concept of speed dating, and are organised in various cities around the world to offer women practitioners (members and non-members) the opportunity to meet and network. We also report on ArbitralWomen panel discussions, whether on topics of particular current interest, such as “Unconscious Bias in International Arbitration”, or regular subjects such as “Experts and Lawyers: Building a Winning Combination.” Interviews with women leaders in dispute resolution are also featured in our Newsletters, as well as tributes to late friends and colleagues from the dispute resolution community.

Discover our Newsletters and subscribe to receive them directly in your email box by registering in the section at the bottom of the page. If you wish to share news from the dispute resolution community with us, write to "Contact us".
