CPR's New ADR Diversity Survey (MCCA Newsletter)

Sunday, Juyl 1, 2007

CPR announces the availability of an ADR Diversity Survey, the first product from their esteemed National Task Force to provide a forum for corporate and legal leadership to advocate for the greater use of diverse, nationally-prominent mediators, arbitrators, advocates, counselors and other participants in the ADR profession.

The ADR Diversity Survey is offered as a model to corporations seeking to measure the current state of participation of professional women and minorities in arbitration, mediation and dispute settlement, and to establish a benchmark against which future participation can be measured. It is offered as a practical tool to inform a company's partners, vendors and affiliates to the challenge of broadening the pool of professionals involved in conflict management and dispute resolution.

The CPR Task Force, co-chaired by representatives from Shell Oil, On Site E-Discovery and E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Company, is comprised of leadership from the world's top companies and firms, including Georgia-Pacific Corporation, JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup Inc., Pitney Bowes Incorporated, UPS, Schering-Plough Corporation, and Bristol-Myers Squibb Company.
