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 rising to decision-making and leadership positions, bringing about greater equity in 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.

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 to recognize the value of a diverse team.


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 promote the development of education in our country, as well as consolidate the social commitment of the firm to the community in which it operates.

Pro Bono Initiatives

We are committed to pro bono work, with the objective of offering free legal services to organizations and the people they represent, and this is only possible with the engagement of our partners, lawyers, and trainees.

We were awarded in 2015, in the category innovation, for the work conducted in partnership with other firms and companies for Teto (“Techo”), an organization present in Latin America and the Caribbean, which seeks to overcome the situation of poverty in which millions of people live, which occurs through the joint action of residents and young volunteers.



In 2014, 2015, 2019, and 2020, we were recognized by Latin Lawyer and Cyrus R Vance Center as one of the leading firm contributing to the development of pro bono culture in Latin America.
