A respected and experienced business executive, Marcie Dickson is pursuing her vision to make alternative dispute resolution more transparent, inclusive, and diverse – by opening it up beyond the small club of insiders who dominate the industry. Leveraging nearly 20 years of business development experience – including as the only Black female Chief Marketing & Business Development Officer in ADR nationally and one of only a handful in the legal industry – Marcie now leads an experienced team and a prominent and diverse panel of neutrals at Alterity ADR.
Bloomberg Law, Forbes, The American Lawyer, Law360, and the American Bar Association have recognized Dickson’s work. She is a guest host of the ABA Dispute Resolution Section podcast, “Resolutions” and serves as a steering committee member of the Equal Representation in Arbitration Pledge (ERA) and the Black In-House Counsel Black Diamond Series. Additionally, Dickson is a member of several organizations, including the Atlanta International Arbitration Society, the National Association of Women Lawyers, the National Bar Association, the American Marketing Association, and the Legal Marketing Association (LMA). Marcie is an executive member of the Atlanta Business Chronicle Leadership Trust and Forbes Business Council and serves as an editorial advisory council member of Southern Lawyer and Harvard Business Review.
