International law firm Dorsey & Whitney LLP is pleased to announce that for the sixteenth consecutive year it has received a 100% rating—a perfect score—on the 2022 Corporate Equality Index (CEI). The CEI is a national benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ+) workplace equality, administered by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation. Dorsey joins the ranks of 840 major U.S. businesses that also earned top marks this year.
The results of the 2022 CEI showcase how 1,271 U.S.-based companies are promoting LGBTQ+-friendly workplace policies in the U.S., but also how those CEI-rated companies with global operations are helping advance the cause of LGBTQ+ inclusion in workplaces abroad. Dorsey’s efforts in satisfying all of the CEI’s criteria earned a 100 percent ranking and the designation as one of the Best Places to Work for LGBTQ+ Equality.
The CEI rates employers providing these crucial protections to over 20 million U.S. workers and an additional 18 million abroad. Companies rated in the CEI include Fortune magazine’s 500 largest publicly traded businesses, American Lawyer magazine’s top 200 revenue-grossing law firms (AmLaw 200), and hundreds of publicly and privately held mid- to large-sized businesses
“Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is core to our culture and we strive to foster a workplace that supports employees in bringing their whole selves to work," said Managing Partner Bill Stoeri. “It's an honor to receive a 100% rating for the sixteenth consecutive year from the Human Rights Campaign and we are grateful that HRC continues to recognize our efforts to ensure an inclusive environment for all.”
