Many of our members are adjusting to the new normal of working remotely. Social distancing and travel restrictions have made it more challenging to network and make new connections from around the world.
“ArbitralWomen Connect”, a new programme developed by ArbitralWomen member, Elizabeth Chan and open to members of ArbitralWomen, seeks to fill this void by matching members of ArbitralWomen with each other on a one-on-one basis. The purpose of the programme is to help our members to build meaningful connections with others in the same field and to help build solidarity in the international arbitration community during what is an extraordinarily difficult and isolating time. ArbitralWomen Connect is not a mentoring programme; the only commitment required of participants is that they meet with their match at least once – at a time and via a medium of their choice. We encourage participants to use this opportunity to make a new connection and to collaborate with each other on arbitration-related initiatives.
The pilot programme will involve 20 members and we will endeavour to match you with someone with whom you may have a shared interest.
If you are a member of ArbitralWomen and would like to participate, please complete the application form, available here, by 20 May 2020.
We look forward to hearing from you!
