Demonstrating that it continues to be an enlightened work environment for the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community, law firm Morrison & Foerster LLP has again achieved a perfect 100-percent score on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index for 2007, earning the distinction of being one of the “Best Places to Work for GLBT Equality.”
Since 2003 the firm has received a perfect score every year, one of the few law firms to do so. This year 29 other law firms were rated at 100 percent (the trend is sharply upward – last year there were just 12). The average score among law firms surveyed was 88. With the realization that one of the best ways to attract high-quality employees is to offer a diverse and inclusive workplace, Morrison & Foerster is proud to set such a consistent example of equality and integrity in our industry.
The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) created its Corporate Equality Index to measure how completely company policies, including benefits, are made and applied without regard to the sexual preference, orientation, or expression of employees or customers. This year the HRC surveyed a total of 519 businesses in 29 industry sectors; law firms were drawn from the AmLaw 200. A total of 195 companies achieved perfect scores of 100, the HRC reports, up nearly 15-fold in the last five years.
