DRI ADR Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Initiative
The DRI Center for Law and Public Policy (The Center) is proud to support its ADR Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Initiative, with a goal of increasing diversity and inclusion among neutrals in underrepresented categories.
Despite the longstanding discussion about how to increase diversity among neutrals appointed to resolve insurance-related disputes, there is an absence of quantifiable data on the demographic profiles of mediators and arbitrators chosen by insurers and lawyers. As the initiative’s first stage, the Center has developed and launched a Diversity Survey to address this data void and to create a benchmark that will enable insurers, self-insureds, managing general agents, and outside law firms to identify the national averages for appointments of underrepresented neutrals and how they are performing against those national averages.
