Great share, Professor. Interesting comment by Professor La Rue, and I will have to explore more of that--but just like having more minority police officers doesn't necessarily improve police brutality, not sure if having more diverse arbitrators, while a laudable goal, will create fair outcomes for consumers.

The Ray Corollary Initiative™ ("RCI™") is a major initiative adopted by the National Academy of Arbitrators, CPR, and the American Bar Association Dispute Resolution Section. The RCI proposes that all ADR providers and selectors commit to slates or rosters of proposed neutrals for any given matter include at least 30% diverse neutral candidates (defined as Black, Latinx, Indigenous, Asian American Pacific Islander ("AAPI"), other people of color, women, persons with differing sexual orientations and gender identities, and persons living with disabilities), and those providers and selectors drive accountability by tracking selections from those slates and rosters.
