Diversity and Inclusion

The Diversity and Inclusion Committee emerged in 2011, based on the work developed under the Women in Machado Meyer Program, which, with its evolution, attracted our attention to other forms of diversity besides gender.

Today we have 3 D&I initiatives: Gender Equity, Ethnic-Racial and LGBTQ+.

Gender Equity
CONNECTing women

We seek to create tools for the development of our female lawyers and provide opportunities for the rise to decision-making and leadership positions, bringing greater equity to the proportion between men and women.

These actions are reinforced by external commitments such as WEPS and the Target Gender Equality movement, linked to UN Women and the Global Compact.

LGBTQ+
#1GUALDADE

Launched in 2017, the #1gualdade program represents the firm's commitment to supporting diversity and promoting an open, inclusive and welcoming environment for LGBTQ+ audiences.

Its main goals are to respect diversity by creating an environment for our people to express themselves freely and the recognize the value of a diverse team.

Ethnic-Racial
ID.AFRO

ID.AFRO is the racial affinity group of our D&I Committee. It seeks to promote ethno-racial equity through debate and initiatives to create an inclusive and diverse firm.

Social Investment and Incentive Laws

The sponsorship of Machado Meyer aims to financially support, through incentive laws and direct grant, social responsibility projects of organizations that contribute to promoting the development of education in our country, as well as consolidate the social commitment of the firm to the community in which it operates.
