Job placement for people with disabilities
BLP has adapted within its organizational culture the inclusion of people with disabilities within its workforce.
Through the efforts of our sister foundation Yo Puedo y ¿Vos? we promote labor and educational integration of disabled persons, having assisted more than 215 people in entering the regional labor market.
• Decent, dignified work and discrimination prevention
BLP has established internal policies to protect and fulfill the right to work of both female and male employees. One of the fundamental principles of the BLP’s work environment is non-discrimination against any staff member or another employee for any reason, defining specific actions both to encourage a diverse team and to promote the participation of women in all areas of BLP's work. We also maintain commissions to analyze the labor integration of people with disabilities and the LGTBI population.
At BLP we believe that the female workforce is an essential part of the firm's success. Through the Gender Equality Commission, made up of Partners, lawyers and administrative directors of the firm, we have developed policies and actions to promote the recruitment and retention of female talent in the region. The results of our efforts are:
- ZERO wage gaps between men and women
- 50% of our lawyers are women
- 50% of our administrative managers are women
Personal and professional development of girls within society
Through our social program, Sustainability by BLP, we adopted and support the Inspiring Girls Foundation in Costa Rica and Honduras, with our Partners, Vivian Liberman in Costa Rica and Karla Aguilar in Honduras, serving as President of the organization in each respective country. Inspiring Girls is an organization dedicated to increasing the self-esteem and professional ambition of girls of school age from all over the world by putting them in contact with women "role models".
