A CCA Education & Diversity Committee Webinar

April 26, 2023 @ 12:00 Noon – 1:00pm Eastern

Increasing the selection of diverse arbitrators, mediators, and other ADR neutrals requires a real commitment from those doing the selection, and an awareness by them of the benefits of selecting diverse neutrals. In this webinar, Professor Homer C. LaRue of Howard University School of Law will present the Ray Corollary Initiative, a detailed plan of action to increase the number of diverse persons selected as arbitrators and mediators. Professor LaRue will then be joined by a panel of corporate counsel for an honest and thoughtful discussion of the benefits and challenges of selecting diverse neutrals, and why diversity matters in ADR.

Presenters include:

Professor Homer C. LaRue, Howard University School of Law
Christopher M. Campbell, Senior Counsel, Litigation, Baker Hughes
Brook Gardiner, SVP, General Counsel, MLS NEXT Pro
Effie D. Silva, SVP, General Counsel, Corporate Secretary, Fresh Del Monte Produce
