Diversity Award

Now Accepting Nominations for 2021

The National Task Force on Diversity in ADR created an Award for Outstanding Contribution to Diversity in ADR to recognize a person or organization who has contributed significantly to diversity in the alternative dispute resolution field. Submissions are reviewed by a panel consisting of past winners, along with CPR’s Co-Chairs of the National Task Force on Diversity and CPR’s President. 


The awards ceremony is held in conjunction with CPR’s Annual Meeting.
