We are signatory to the 7 Women’s Empowerment Principles

TozziniFreire is signatory to the 7 Women’s Empowerment Principles, a UN Women and Global Compact initiative. The endorsement follows our commitment to diversity, recognizing and developing our professionals in favor of gender equity.

UN Women was created in 2010 to unite, strengthen and expand global efforts to advocate for women's human rights. It follows the two-decade legacy of the United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM) in defense of women's human rights, especially for supporting the articulation and actions of women and feminists, including black, indigenous and young women, domestic and rural workers. There are six priority areas for action:

  •          women's political leadership and participation;
  •          economic empowerment;
  •          ending violence against women and girls;
  •          peace and security and humanitarian emergencies;
  •          governance and planning;
  •          global and regional standards.

UN Women is headquartered in New York, United States. It has regional offices Africa, Americas, Asia and Europe. In Brazil, the office operates in Brasilia.
