Gonzalez Calvillo - Meet new stardards

In all our areas, departments, divisions, and sectors, we strive for all our members to demonstrate and fulfill their potential without labels or restrictions. Maintaining a healthy work environment free of prejudice is one of our driving forces to achieve the development of our work and, therefore, of the members of the firm.

We believe that diversity and inclusion is not only beneficial for our professional team, but also for our personal and family environment, our clients and society in general.

Our goal is to continue being forerunners in the development of D&I initiatives in the Latin American legal services market, and to aim to make a difference in the role we aspire to play in the attempts to generate tangible results in our work ecosystems.

We want to continue being different from others. Differences and diversity of backgrounds contribute to an environment of solidarity and understanding that makes us all better. We see this reflected in our team, where we always think of having the best talent, seeking to incorporate Diversity and Inclusion in all our daily activities, to challenge ourselves and thus find the best solutions for our clients.

Proudly, in recent months and today more than ever, Gonzalez Calvillo and its collaborators have been pioneering initiatives where, together with various organizations with whom we have cultivated ties and which - like ourselves - believe and share the vision that D&I plays a fundamental role not only in the creation of value propositions, but also in the creation of opportunities to grow and develop professionally and personally, regardless of gender, sexual identity and orientation, race or ethnicity, age, religion, marital or family status, neurotypicality or physical abilities.
