Seyfarth announced today that, for the 12th consecutive year,
the firm earned a perfect score of 100 in the annual Human Rights
Campaign Foundation's Corporate Equality Index (CEI)
and was named a "Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality."
The CEI is the nation's premier benchmarking survey
and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to
LGBTQ workplace equality.
Seyfarth's chair and managing partner Peter Miller remarked, "At Seyfarth, we strive to be the legal industry's best example of an inclusive and diverse workplace. I know our attorneys and staff are extremely proud of this honor and reinvigorated to continue shaping a firm that embraces all its people."
"It's with great pride that the firm can celebrate the honor of 'Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality' for the 12th year in a row. Through the work of the wonderful leaders in the firm's inclusion & diversity action team and LGBTQ affinity group, Seyfarth has developed inclusion and diversity initiatives that are positively impacting all of our colleagues and clients," said Kori Carew, Seyfarth's chief inclusion & diversity officer.
The 2020 CEI evaluates LGBTQ-related policies and practices including non-discrimination workplace protections, domestic partner benefits, transgender-inclusive health care benefits, competency programs, and public engagement with the LGBTQ community. Seyfarth's efforts in satisfying all of the CEI's criteria results in a 100 percent ranking and the designation as a "Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality."
The Human Rights Campaign Foundation (HRC) is the educational arm of America's largest civil rights organization working to achieve equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual transgender and queer people.
