For the 10th year in a row, Bryan Cave has earned a perfect score of 100 percent on the Corporate Equality Index (CEI), a national benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to LGBT workplace equality, administered by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation.
“As an important part of our continued commitment to making the firm a diverse and inclusive workplace for everyone, we are proud to once again earn 100 percent in this evaluation,” said firm Chair Therese Pritchard. “The CEI is considered the gold standard in evaluating employer policies and practices on LGBT issues.”
The 2017 CEI officially rated 887 businesses on LGBT-related policies and practices, including equal employment opportunity policies; employment benefits; organizational LGBT competency; and public commitment. The Human Rights Campaign noted that the most significant progress in the survey this year was wide-scale adoption of transgender-inclusive initiatives across businesses.
Nationwide, 112 law firms earned 100 percent – more than any other business sector. Click here to read the full 2017 Corporate Equality Index report.
