To celebrate International Women’s Day 2023, Careers in Arbitration, founded by ArbitralWomen Advisory Council Member Amanda Lee, launched its fourth annual International Women’s Day campaign.
Launched in 2019, Careers in Arbitration is a social media-based platform that promotes diversity in arbitration by sharing information about opportunities in the field of arbitration with a global audience. The platform is followed by more than 50,000 people.
This year, Careers in Arbitration focused on the career journeys of in-house counsel from a wide range of different industries and geographical locations, including women working in-house in academia, commodities, energy, food and beverages, healthcare, maritime insurance, mining, oil and gas, retail, shipping, and transportation, in addition to those serving as general counsel for arbitral institutions and chambers.
The campaign featured former ArbitralWomen Board member Alison Pearsall and ArbitralWomen members Patrycja Kolwas, Carola Rojas, and Nancy M. Thevenin, together with Müge Anber-Kontakis, Marina Baher Gaballah, Neval Berdibek, Nadya Berova, Gwendoline Brooker, Adwoa Ghartey-Tagoe Seymour, Claudia P. Gutiérrez Roca, Elizabeth Hincapié Hincapié, Sharon Lee-Thibault, Daniela Molina Trujillo, Cecilia Ndeti, Josephine Renee Osiro, Raven Schofield, Laura Starr, and Izabella Vergara-Arenas.
The posts are available on LinkedIn and will be featured on Careers in Arbitration’s website in the future. Search for the hashtag #CiAEquity to read the participants’ professional stories, discover how they embrace equity in their respective roles, benefit from their top tips for an in-house career in arbitration, and learn who inspires them.
