Pledge dinners with the SCC and LCIA
LCIA and SCC joined forces organizing two “Pledge dinners” to discuss concrete actions to achieve gender balance in arbitrator appointments. The dinners took place in London on 4 October and in Stockholm on 23 November 2016, respectively. A varied group of male and female practitioners was invited to the dinners.
While dinner was served, the guests discussed with their neighbours measures to implement the Pledge. The individual discussions alternated with a stimulating exchange of experiences and ideas amongst the wider audience. Secretary General of the SCC, Annette Magnusson moderated the discussions in London, while Director General of the LCIA, Jacomijn van Haersolte-van Hof, moderated the discussions in Stockholm.
