Social responsibility: learn about the actions we support.

diversity and
civic engagement

Our differences are our
greatest competitive advantage.


Diversity is not an «alternative Human Resources policy», but the only possible way to assemble creative, adaptable and open-minded teams, that are able to deal with the new demands of markets and corporations.

While traditional approaches are limited to «fitting people in», we celebrate diversity without making noise about it, welcoming differences through a vast selection and recruiting pipeline, that embraces maturity, diversity of gender identity, ethnic pluralism, cultural, religious and socio-economic backgrounds and world views.

Our way of living,
embracing, leading and endeavor

We celebrate diversity and defy every form of prejudice, because we want everyone to be proud of what they are and want to be.

Furthermore, we believe that a truly inclusive culture shows itself in an open space for everybody, dissolves barriers and unleashes each person's natural potential.

He For She

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.

And the proposal is simple. Men: use your power of influence.

«HeForShe: men are part of the solution.»

Talk about respect for women with your friends, wherever you are. At work, at the pub, at the barbershop, in the ring, on the mat, at the stadium or at the gym. Engage and encourage the practice of gender equality in all your social roles.

Millions of people around the world are already part of the United Nations' global solidarity movement for gender equality. Get inspired by their stories and take action.

HeForShe: advancing dialogue among men and boys, about how they can act as allies in promoting respect for women.

Our teams are encouraged to learn how to learn, to develop negotiating skills, to roll out their ideas, to develop healthy habits and balance between respect and empathy on one side, and courage and integrity of character on the other.

We are in the business of people and information. Our Intellectual Capital is our greatest asset.

Therefor being the best means having the best team.

People are our main asset.

Sharing needs in order to share the meaning of life.

Looking to
real people

We can't solve all the problems of the people we help with our small social gestures. Nevertheless, we can't ignore the interest our heart has for others, nor our desire to share life.

Doing good might simply be smiling, listening carefully, be silent, speak with sincere affection or donating a little of our time.

We believe, that doing our job with passion is also a way of doing good, intervening positively in society and building a legacy.

Donating oneself is a structural demand of the human condition, and when we fail to do it, we fail to fulfill ourselves.

It is very

When we recognize something beautiful, something that matches our desire for happiness, we feel compelled to communicate it to others. And when we see someone's dignity violated, their integrity compromised or their potential ignored, something in us demands that we shift some of our energy to «do something». Sometimes it's just being available.

Of course, we are not always like that. But we acknowledge that this is our nature.

«Cura Personalis»

Furthermore, we sponsor discreet gestures of solidarity with a kind glance for real people and their specific needs, as long as there is no public disclosure. If your Organization wishes to be a partner of our «cura personalis» initiatives, please contact us.

Uni Arte Project

Economic development and gender equity.
Click to watch the video

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».
