Since 2019 Ligia has been one of the three leaders of the Women of the Arbitration and Litigation Team, a support group of 80 whose main purpose is to provide a space of comfort, encouragement and debate about the main challenges that women face within society and the legal business. Besides having conversations where women of different levels of seniority share their personal experiences, Ligia also brings outside guests to speak to the group. She is particularly responsible for coordinating the monthly meetings, suggesting topics of common interest, and inviting speakers who can contribute to the gender diversity and women’s inclusion discussion. Since the group was created in 2019, Ligia and her team have noticed a deeper engagement of all associates, including men, and a greater commitment to gender equality within the organization. They have also recognized an increased in the number of female associates hired, now representing more than 50% of the Litigation and Arbitration Team.
