We are genuinely committed to ensuring an equitable and respectful environment. In this regard, we value each individual and work daily to create an inclusive culture to provide opportunities for everyone to reach their full potential.
With this approach, we hope to impact positively not only our professionals, but also our clients, suppliers and the entire society. Our initiatives on race, gender, LGBTQIA+, PCD and pro bono seek to engage and promote diversity and combat discrimination and social inequality inside and outside the firm.
Our aim is to increase the representation of black professionals and promote racial equity in all managerial levels of the firm. We believe that awareness and education are the main tools to create a diverse and welcoming environment that encourages the development of all our professionals. We regularly promote debates and events on racial issues, seeking to disseminate and discuss best practices for the effective inclusion and career progression of black and mixed-race professionals in our firm.
Aimed at encouraging female leadership, we implemented a program dedicated to training our female leaders. We also promote internal actions to raise awareness to gender equality, and create and foster an inclusive environment in order to boost our women’s careers. We offer extended maternity and paternity leaves in compliance with the “Empresa Cidadã”, a federal government program
Our mission is to promote opportunities for the LGBTQIA+ population. We are focused on combating any form of prejudice or discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.

We promote a culture of diversity by raising awareness among leaders and teams to advance people with disabilities.
