Russian Women in Arbitration is a dynamic community that is committed to promoting gender equality in the field of arbitration. To achieve this goal, RWA organizes and participates in various events that aim to raise awareness and promote the importance of gender equality and inclusivity within and outside of the arbitration community. These events provide a platform for arbitration practitioners to share their experiences, network, and learn from one another.
