Tortola, British Virgin Islands, 18 March -- Janette Brin, manager of the BVI International Arbitration Centre, raised awareness of the Centre’s work among a diverse array of chief executives, world-class entertainers and political leaders during the 14th Annual Black Enterprise Women in Power Summit, held February 28 through March 3 at The Mirage in Las Vegas.
“The summit is the largest event for professional black women in the world, and I was delighted and honoured to represent the Centre, which continues to be a pioneer of diversity and inclusion in the field of international arbitration,” said Ms. Brin.
The summit welcomed 1,000 attendees from hundreds of fields and dozens of countries. During her week in Las Vegas, Ms. Brin interacted with numerous power players on the international stage, including Valerie Jarrett, senior fellow at University of Chicago Law School and former senior adviser to President Barack Obama. United States Senator Kamala Harris spoke on all things politics, race, and her role as the first black woman to run for president of the U.S. in decades.
According to Ms. Brin, “Ms. Jarret reminded us to stay flexible, and Ms. Harris told women to remain optimistic, saying that if we are not active, we cannot count on the right thing to happen. In our field, this is particularly apt given that the call for more diversity, in recent years, is being heard loud and clear. At the Centre, we are committed to evolving, changing and leading the call for what’s right.”
Ms. Brin attended 14th Annual Legacy Awards Gala hosted by PepsiCo., a celebration of women who are trailblazers in their fields, including Dallas Mavericks CEO Cynthia Marshall, the first black woman to head a National Basketball Association team.
“According to Ms. Marshall, ‘Diversity is being invited to the party. Inclusion is being asked to dance,’” sad Ms. Brin. “The Centre will continue to be active and ensure that everyone is ‘asked to dance.’ I left the summit inspired and motivated after dialoguing with these bold leaders and visionaries, and with the knowledge that the Centre’s mission of inclusion will continue to spread.”
