Program for working mothers

Mitrani Caballero Ojam & Ruiz Moreno acknowledges the increasing role that women play in the legal practice and the importance of creating a program to allow female lawyers to comply with their key role as mothers and, at the same time, continue practicing law, thus ensuring equal opportunities for professional development, regardless of gender.

Our program for working mothers seeks to strike a balance between the demands of motherhood, the objectives of our firm and our clients’ interests.

This program offers a series of options aimed at facilitating female lawyers the possibility of combining family demands with their professional career, allowing the possibility of adopting a flexible regime, which is tailor made for each particular situation.

The purpose of this program is to allow female lawyers to continue their professional development according to their family needs and personal choices.

Our program for working mothers has been recognized in the category of “Best Gender Diversity Initiative” of the 2012 edition of the “Women in Law Latin America Awards 2012” launched by Chambers & Partners. It was also recognized in the 2014 edition of the awards “Hacia una Empresa Familiarmente Responsable” organized by “Fundación Padres” and sponsored by “Centro Walmart Conciliación Familia y Empresa” of the IAE Business School. 

Our program was also awarded by the Government of the City of Buenos Aires in the category “Responsabilidad Social Empresaria – Público Interno” of the 2015 edition of the competition for companies that, applying CSR principles, show interest in orienting their business with a sustainable view, with the aim of complying with Corporate Social Responsibility according to ISO 26000:2010 criteria.
