Diversity

At ICC, we recognise the economic and social benefits of diversity, while undertaking efforts to improve cultural and gender balances to benefit our own services and operations.

Diversity spurs economic growth by tapping into the skills and talent of individuals or groups underutilized or left out of the labour force entirely. 

Despite a greatly heightened recognition of the economic case for improving diversity in the workforce, much remains to be done.

ICC is committed to spreading best practice and showcasing self-regulation initiatives that successfully reduce inequalities and the gender gap. And as a global organization we recognize that those efforts will benefit our own practices too.

From global efforts to improve gender balance on arbitral tribunals to initiatives to leverage the diverse workforce of the world business organization, ICC is dedicated to fostering a culture of equality across all work areas.
