Chambers Women in Law Latin America Awards: Winners

Since 2012, gender diversity in Latin America has been of paramount importance to Chambers & Partners and of great personal importance to me. Being in Latin America, feels like home. I am honoured to meet intelligent, inspiring women each time I visit.

Over the last 3 years, I have seen a growing awareness in this area. All of our nominees have shown their commitment furthering the advancement of women in the law. We have seen the power of clients in effecting change for diversity and I am very lucky to have worked with a large number of female corporate counsel in the region.

We also congratulate firms who have taken positive action to recruit, retain and promote their diverse lawyers. These firms have created diversity networks, collective enablers, such as implementing supportive HR policies and close monitoring of gender statistics over time and finally, they have the support of their managing partners. Not only do we need the visible female champions but we also need the visible and active support of those at the very top who can effect change.

Congratulations to all of our nominees and winners! Thanks to our sponsors CAM-CCBC and Machado Meyer.

The event took place on Thursday, October 1st at The Grand Mercure, Sao Paulo.
