Human Rights Campaign Foundation Corporate Equality Index
In the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2014 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), Sutherland Asbill & Brennan LLP scored 100% for the fifth year in a row in a study benchmarking important employer benefits and protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) employees and their families. The annual survey rates law firms on 40 specific policies and practices. To achieve a perfect score and the coveted distinction of “Best Places to Work for LGBT Equality,” firms must have fully-inclusive equal employment opportunity policies, provide equal employment benefits, demonstrate organizational LGBT competency, evidence their commitment to equality publicly and exercise responsible citizenship.
More than 145 law firms participated in the 2014 CEI study. Eighty-one firms received a perfect score, and another 38 firms received a 90% score.
The Human Rights Campaign is America’s largest civil rights organization working to achieve LGBT equality. By inspiring and engaging all Americans, HRC strives to end discrimination against LGBT citizens and realize a nation that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for all.
