NOVEMBER 18, 2015 – Davis Wright Tremaine LLP is pleased to announce that it has again received a perfect score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2016 Corporate Equality Index and has been recognized as one of the country’s “Best Places to Work for LGBT Equality.”
Launched in 2002, HRC’s Corporate Equality Index (CEI) is America’s premiere benchmarking tool for LGBT workplace equality and has incorporated increasingly stringent criteria for achieving a perfect score. The 2016 CEI, for the first time in its 14-year history, required that top-scoring companies have a global non-discrimination policy or code of conduct that specifically prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.
Davis Wright Tremaine, which has eight offices around the U.S. and one in Shanghai, has received numerous honors for its commitment to diversity and inclusion. These include Gold Certification from the Women in Law Empowerment Forum and designation as one of the country’s 50 Best Law Firms for Women by Working Mother magazine.
