“Saying the ADR industry lacks diversity doesn’t fully capture it. It’s perhaps more precise to say the profession suffers from a chronological lag. Most neutrals selected to mediate or arbitrate disputes are retired judges or attorneys with long careers behind them, meaning the pool of individuals reflects the legal industry not as it looks today, but as it appeared a decade or more ago.”
