Speakers made the comments during a half-day Diversity and Inclusion in the Latin American Legal Profession conference, which took place on 5 June, and drew more than 130 attendees from more than a dozen countries. The event was organised by in-house counsel from Philip Morris, GE, Honeywell, Walmart and Mondeléz, and supported by the Cyrus R Vance Center for International Justice and the Institute for Inclusion in the Legal Profession. It was also livestreamed to 12 countries across Latin America, coinciding with local forums in Brazil, Bolivia, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru and Uruguay.
