Launch of Racial Equality for Arbitration Lawyers (REAL)

Launch of Racial Equality for Arbitration Lawyers (REAL) 1/3/2021

Racial Equality for Arbitration Lawyers (REAL) is a new initiative launched by a group of global lawyers practicing international arbitration who are committed to striving to achieve racial equality for arbitration lawyers.

REAL is led by co-chairs ArbitralWomen Board member Rekha Rangachari, ArbitralWomen member Crina Baltag and Kabir Duggal. The organisation is incorporated as a non-profit entity under the laws of New York.
REAL looks to champion underrepresented groups in international arbitration. Anyone who wants to contribute to promoting awareness of the lack of racial diversity and facilitate change can be a member. There is no membership fee. Members are simply encouraged to help facilitate the cause for greater racial representation in international arbitration. Together the Steering Committee and members of REAL aim to facilitate dialogue, action, and change.
REAL will launch formally on 18 January 2021 with two virtual inauguration sessions at 9am and 5pm Eastern Standard Time (EST). Stay tuned for details on the launch event and REAL initiatives on REAL’s LinkedIn handle. All who are interested in learning more about REAL are welcomed to register free of charge to attend.
