Peixoto & Cury does not accept any form of professional recognition unless it is approved by its impartial examination of professional qualities based on aptitude, expertise and commitment. For this very reason, we positively frown on any practices intending to belittle any person on the basis of gender, ethnic group, sexual orientation or religious belief. We have a different measuring system: it is based on justice and ethics.
Today our law firm has more women than men. Our challenge is to move ahead establishing directions going a long way further than good intentions and empirical practices. We want to rule by example and show everything we have already done and what we are planning to do. All arranged in rules and policies (expressly and clearly defined).
Our Project includes training and mentoring, network building, maternity support and discussion with men in search of recognition and appreciation of women and creation of an inclusive culture.
To express and implement our firm and everlasting understanding, we made a commitment to materialize isonomy systems between men and women using empowerment policies which, more than a mere slogan, are recognized by our women professionals, all of them of the first rank and committed to the success of our firm and clients’ satisfaction.
Peixoto & Cury is proud and excited to publicly embrace the commitment to the women’s empowerment agenda. The Principles consist of a group of considerations that help the business community to follow values and practices promoting gender equality and women’s empowerment in their business life. The Women’s Empowerment Principles support the fifth Global Goal of the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. Building a 50-50 Planet depends on all people whether male or female, who strive in a concrete and systematic manner to eradicate gender inequalities. Here are the Principles:
1. Create corporate leadership sensitive to gender equality, at the highest level.
2. Treat all women and men with fairness in the workplace, respecting and supporting human rights and nondiscrimination.
3. Ensure health, safety and well-being to all women and men working at our law firm.
4. Promote education, training and professional development for women.
5. Support women’s entrepreneurship and create women’s empowerment policies via supply chains and marketing.
6. Promote gender equality via initiatives addressed to the community and social activism.
7. Measure, document and publish our firm’s progresses in promoting gender equality.
