Diversity and Inclusion

The Diversity and Inclusion Committee was established in 2011, stemming from the work developed within the Women at Machado Meyer Program, which, as it evolved, drew our attention to other forms of diversity beyond gender. Today, we have five D&I initiatives: gender equity, LGBTQIA+, ethnic-racial, parenthood, and people with disabilities.

Gender Equity
Elas conectam

We seek to create tools for developing our female employees and provide opportunities for advancement to decision-making and leadership positions, bringing greater equity to the ratio between men and women.

These actions are reinforced by external commitments such as the Women’s Empowerment Principles and the Elas Lideram movement, linked to UN Women and the Global Compact.


IDENTIDADE AFRO - ID.AFRO is the racial affinity group of our D&I Committee. It aims to promote ethnic-racial equity through discussions and initiatives to create an inclusive and diverse workplace.


Launched in 2017, the program reflects the firm's commitment to supporting diversity and promoting an open, inclusive, and welcoming environment for the LGBTQIA+ community.

Its main objectives include respecting diversity, creating an environment where our employees can express themselves freely, and recognizing the value of a diverse team.

Other Initiatives


The Machado Meyer Volunteering Program offers an opportunity to make a difference by meeting the needs of various communities in which we operate, always by the office's Social Responsibility guidelines.

We believe that together, we can promote transformation and contribute to building a fairer and more supportive society.

Our initiative's actions are divided into three types: ongoing (executed in the long term), specific (carried out at specific times), and remote (conducted in a virtual environment).


#1Afeto is the affinity group at Machado Meyer that aims to bring parenting-related topics into the daily life of the office.

The idea is to address the subject from a chronological order of parenthood and various perspectives: fathers, mothers, and any individuals involved or responsible for the development of the next generation.

People with Disabilities

A plural perspective values individual potentialities. Machado Meyer is implementing a series of measures to make our work environment more inclusive to welcome and integrate people with disabilities into our team.

Pro Bono

We are committed to pro bono work, aiming to provide free legal services to organizations and individuals they represent, and this is only possible with the engagement of our partners, lawyers, and interns.

We value actions that inspire our employees and recognize that carrying out pro bono work is fully aligned with the strength of our brand and the values of our culture.


Social Investment and Incentive Laws

Machado Meyer's sponsorship aims to financially support, through incentive laws and direct funding, social responsibility projects of third sector organizations that contribute to promoting the development of education in our country, as well as consolidating the office's social commitment to the community in which it operates.

Employees who identify with issues such as sustainability and the environment have the opportunity to make a difference at Machado Meyer through the Green Team, an affinity group that aims to promote discussions, propose actions and practical solutions that can change thoughts and attitudes inside and outside the office.

Among the actions carried out on this front, we have reduced the use of disposable items by distributing sustainable cups and mugs to new employees, and held the Sustainability in Fashion Bazaar, where our employees donate items of clothing.
