USCIB/ICC USA supports diversity and inclusion in international dispute resolution. Towards this end, we encourage arbitrators, mediators and experts from ethnically diverse backgrounds to register on USCIB’s Arbitrator Database and participate in our arbitration events and activities.
Current projects in which we are participating include
REAL – Racial Equality for Arbitration Lawyers

The New List of Arbitrators of African Descent with a U.S. Nexus
Created by arbitrators Nancy M. Thevenin and Dr. Katherine Simpson as a direct response to the perceived shortage of African American arbitrators, the New List Arbitrators of African Descent with a U.S. Nexus (the “List Project”) includes experienced, up-and-coming, and new entries to the industry. The List Project is meant to assist parties, neutrals, law firms and institutions to identify ADR professionals of African descent.
The current version of the List Project can be found here.
