Vaz de Almeida Advogados assumes the public commitment to the 2030 Agenda: gender equity and economic development.
Paulo Reganin, editor.
From the Comunication Department.
We inform all our clients, friends, and subscribers that we are now signatories of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the ambitious appeal to solve humanity’s main challenges, signed by the 193 Members States of the United Nations.
Our endorsement of the 2030 Agenda, through the goals «Gender Equity» (SDG n.5) and «Labor and Economic Development» (SDG n.8), not only welcomes our previous initiatives ― such as, for example, the Uni Arte project and our institutional commitment to the UN-Women’s HeForShe initiative ―, but from now on serves to guide our decision-making process regarding future institutional alliances and community partnerships, with our Code of Conduct remaining the ultimate criteria. In addition, making our initiative a public gesture has the educational purpose of speaking to our partners, collaborators, and suppliers about the essence of the nature of our «motu proprio» of doing Pro Bono, according to the terms of our Culture ― and, in this way, reaffirming it.
Uni Arte Project:
supporting female leadership
in a community
We have been partners with Uni Arte, a «creative economy» experience connected to the Automotive Chain, since 2016. The Project has transformed the lives of a talented community of artisans and seamstresses in the City of Indaiatuba (SP), through the upcycling of seat belts, airbags, and automotive fabrics, transforming them into fashion and art pieces. The Project relies on our free legal support, with the same technical rigor and energy with which we serve all our customers. Currently constituted as a cooperative, Uni Arte is the story of a group of young mothers, housewives and grandmothers who decided to act to change the course of their lives: without political ties or public funding, the initiative generates work and income, making it possible for its members to make a decisive contribution to their families through the design of backpacks, bags, notebook cases and other incredible items.
As Judite Fernanda Simionato, president of the institution, frequently reports, «when income comes into the household through women, we know that the most basic needs will be met. Children, the sick and the elderly will be cared for, the main needs of the family will be met».
Vaz de Almeida is a signatory of
the HeForShe global commitment
Since March 2021, we have formally committed to the global #HeForShe movement, becoming its signatories (#2221499) aswell as promoters. The #HeForShe Movement is a UN-Women initiative to facilitate dialogue among men and boys about how they can act as allies in promoting gender equity and respect for women.
What about you? What are your motives for transforming the world?
