Neutrals Diversity Alliance

The Neutrals Diversity Alliance (NDA) increases diversity in Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) proceedings.

Our Mission

nda history

The NDA is the next phase of the successful Conflict Resolution Diversity Initiative (CRDI) pilot. CRDI originated at the Capital University Law School in 2009. The initiative, the first of its kind in the country, sought to address the under-representation of minority neutrals in ADR matters. The initiative aimed to increase opportunities for minorities to serve in civil mediation and arbitration proceedings.

CRDI successfully demonstrated that an alternative ADR system using a diverse pool of neutrals could resolve employment disputes with a higher settlement percentage and lower fees than other traditional ADR systems. NDA will expand this system from the six-state pilot region nationally.

case administration

Through our administrative partner Resolute Systems, LLC, NDA will handle all case administration associated with this program. NDA provides mediation and arbitration procedures and rules that parties may elect to utilize.

For companies with existing Dispute Resolution rules, NDA will administer the ADR proceeding seamlessly using those rules and procedures.
