On January 27, 2022, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation published its 2022 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), the nation’s foremost benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ+ workplace equality. For the third consecutive year, Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati received a top score of 100 and the designation as a “Best Place to Work for LGBTQ+ Equality.” The firm joins the ranks of over 840 major U.S. businesses that also earned top marks this year.
The results of the 2022 CEI showcase not only how 1,271 U.S.-based companies are promoting LGBTQ+-friendly workplace policies in the U.S., but also that 56 percent of CEI-rated companies with global operations are helping advance the cause of LGBTQ+ inclusion in workplaces abroad.
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.
