The Diversity and Inclusion Strategy Report

2021 marked the seventh annual Chambers D&I LATAM Awards, a key event in our year that brings together the best and the brightest of those working for positive change in this crucial legal market.

Each year we receive hundreds of nominations from dozens of firms across the continent, and this year for the first time we are distilling the key learnings from these submissions into a best practice guide. With profiles and case studies from inspirational individuals, leading firms and high profile in house teams across LATAM, the following report aims to provide readers with inspirational ideas as well as practical tips.

The first of these annual reports is structured around the three themes that wove through the hundreds of pages our team combed through this year, each of which could have filled an entire report on their own merit. At a time when the global climate crisis is front of mind for us all, we look at the increasing prevalence of Environmental and Sustainability initiatives amongst firms and in house teams. The Chambers team were also struck by the sheer commitment of our nominees towards the rights and protections of LGBT+ individuals, and we delve into the internal and external facing elements of the legal profession’s work in this area. Lastly we examine the impressive breadth and advancement of the LATAM Pro Bono market, with case studies and profiles from some of the most interesting, unusual and impressive of this year’s shortlist.

We hope that this briefing will help support you in your D&I, Pro Bono and ESG programs, and look forward to continually collaborating with the legal profession through our research and events.
