Meet the Female Arbitrator: Arbitration Pledge Commodities Event, hosted by HFW, 20 Essex Street, and Quadrant Chambers

HFW together with 20 Essex Street and Quadrant Chambers are delighted to host an Arbitration Pledge event to introduce female Commodities arbitrators to those in a position to appoint them.


4 July 2018


HFW, Friary Court


    This Commodities Arbitration Pledge event is the second in a series of similar events across various arbitration sectors, and is aimed at bringing us together in order to better our industry.

      The evening will be in two parts:

    • speed networking, where arbitrators will be given 6 minutes to introduce themselves to each law firm; and
    • an opportunity to network over drinks and canapés.
    We hope that this format will allow key stakeholders in the Commodities arbitration sector to widen their network and forge new relationships. By way of reminder, in 2015 The Pledge was established to increase, on an equal opportunity basis, the number of women appointed as arbitrators in order to achieve a fair representation as soon practically possible, with the ultimate goal of full parity.For further details and to join us and others who have already taken the pledge, please see the link:
