WilmerHale Earns Perfect Score on Human Rights Campaign’s LGBT Workplace Equality Scorecard

November 18, 2015

For the eighth consecutive year, WilmerHale has earned a 100 percent rating in the 2016 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), a measurement of companies policies and practices relating to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) workplace equality, administered by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation (HRC).

The 2016 CEI evaluates LGBT-related policies and practices including non-discrimination workplace protections, domestic partner benefits, transgender-inclusive health care benefits, competency programs and public engagement with the LGBT community. WilmerHale’s efforts in satisfying all of the CEI’s criteria resulted in a 100 percent ranking and the designation as a Best Place to Work for LGBT Equality. 

Diversity and equality are fundamental in WilmerHale’s values and culture. The firm believes that the strongest teams are built from different backgrounds, experiences and perspectives to best meet the needs of clients and our communities.

CEI scorecard results are available on the HRC’s website.
