Gender does not define the ability of a person
At Sánchez Devanny we are convinced that gender diversity in the workplace is necessary, as the talent and capabilities of the person, and not gender, are the most important.
As a testament to this, in our firm 3 partners and 30% of our attorneys are women. Combined with the percentage of women in supporting areas (65% of the administrative staff), 44% of the headcount are women.
For some years, Sánchez Devanny has supported global and local initiatives to promote Gender Diversity and Inclusion in the workplace, such as:
- The Chambers Diversity Seminar Mexico.
Organized by Chambers and Partners, our female partners have been speakers.
- The recently formed nonprofit association AbogadasMX.
This association leads the promotion of Gender Diversity and Inclusion initiatives and projects in Mexico and is made up of attorneys from law firms and companies.
- The Women’s Forum Mexico.
At this event our female partners have actively participated in the last two years.
These are only a few examples of the actions Sánchez Devanny is taking to become an example in the legal industry in Mexico for Gender Diversity and Inclusion.
