Higor has been part of Mattos Filho’s racial diversity initiative from its onset. As one of the few ethnically diverse employees at the Sao Paulo office when the firm started its efforts to address the issue, he was invited to participate in discussions that led to the formalization of the company’s racial diversity internal group SOMA. Since then, Higor has been an active member collaborating in planning and executing D&I activities. SOMA’s Talentos Trainee Program was launched in 2019 to promote racial diversity at career-entry level talent attraction. In addition, SOMA has promoted numerous internal and external initiatives on debating and exposing racial issues within the corporate legal scenario. These include, among others, a series of presentations for internal and external parties, race-related debates with prominent public figures, participation in media coverage, and production of materials related to race and the workplace.
