Jennifer David, Micheline Dewdney and Ruth Charlton are initial founding members of ADRA.

Bridgette Sordot extensively promoted Dispute Resolution in the Law Society while Natasha Serventy promoted Dispute Resolution at the NSW Ombudsman’s office.

As well as being the founding members of ADRA, Jennifer, Ruth and Micheline went on to become founding members of additional organisations.

ADRA wishes to acknowledge the contribution that all five women made as pioneers in the field of mediation and as such all have posthumous awards from ADRA.
