Hogan Lovells Receives Perfect Score on HRC Corporate Equality Index for Sixth Consecutive Year; Named a Best Place to Work for LGBT Equality
19 November 2014
WASHINGTON, D.C. 19 November 2014 – Hogan Lovells announced today that, for the sixth consecutive year, it has been recognized by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) with a 100 percent Corporate Equality Index (CEI) rating and named a best place to work for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) equality. The CEI report, released each fall, provides an in-depth analysis and rating of large U.S. employers and their policies and practices pertinent to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender employees.
"In order to achieve a perfect score, a company has to show a deep and serious commitment to treating their LGBT employees fairly and equally on the job. We also look at whether a company is speaking out in the public square to advocate for LGBT equality here in this country and around the world," said HRC President Chad Griffin. "Hogan Lovells not only meets these standards, it goes above and beyond the call of duty, making commitment to equality a fundamental aspect of its corporate values."
CEI is the national benchmarking tool on corporate policies and practices related to LGBT employees. Businesses rated 100 percent are recognized as "Best Places to Work for LGBT Equality."
"Our commitment to being a diverse and inclusive place to work is at the core of Hogan Lovells' vision and values," said Chief Diversity Officer of Hogan Lovells US LLP, Phyllis Wan. "Receiving a 100 percent rating on HRC's Corporate Equality Index is a direct reflection of our dedication to creating a culture of inclusion, which allows us to attract and retain some of the world's best and brightest lawyers as well as provide superior legal services to our clients."
