Social and Corporate
We believe that promoting education and respect for diversity is an essential aspect of everything we do. Our corporate social responsibility initiatives seek to generate opportunities to build a better society.
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+.
We seek to create tools for the development of our lawyers and provide opportunities for the rise to decision 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.
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: respect for diversity with the creation of an environment so that our people express themselves freely and the recognition of the value of a diverse team.
We were awarded in 2015, in the innovation category, for the work developed in partnership with other offices and companies for the ceiling, an organization present in Latin America and the Caribbean, which seeks to overcome the poverty situation in which millions of people live, which occurs through the joint action of residents and young volunteers.
PRO BONO LEADING LIGHT
In 2014 and 2015, we were recognized by Latin Lawyer and Cyrus R Vance Center as one of the leading offices contributing to the development of pro bono culture in Latin America.

Employees who identify with topics such as Sustainability and environment have the opportunity to make a difference in 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.
In addition to the affinity group, this front also has actions in partnership with our Environmental area, besides having already been responsible for the removal of disposable glasses and cutlery from the office, when all employees won a glass Minus 1 Garbage. With this action, we stopped producing 90 tons of solid waste over 1 year..
