NEW YORK, January 28, 2021: Morgan Lewis received a perfect score of 100% in the Human Rights Campaign’s 2021 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), earning the "Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality” designation. The annual CEI report evaluates LGBTQ-related policies and practices, including nondiscrimination workplace policies, domestic partner benefits, transgender-inclusive healthcare benefits, competency programs, and public engagement with the LGBTQ community.
“We know that having a fully diverse organization where all feel welcomed and have an equal opportunity to succeed is important for our entire firm, as well as our clients,” said Firm Chair Jami McKeon. “We are honored to be recognized by the Human Rights Campaign for our longstanding dedication to creating an inclusive and collaborative culture.”
Morgan Lewis’s LGBTQ+ Lawyer Network is one of six groups that regularly meet to support the recruiting, retention, and professional development of diverse lawyers. Our LGBTQ+ Lawyer Network, in collaboration with our pro bono practice, routinely takes on cases involving LGBTQ+ immigration and civil rights issues. The firm’s larger diversity and inclusion (D&I) program includes a multifaceted approach that influences how we service clients, collaborate with colleagues, and recruit prospective Morgan Lewis lawyers and administrative professionals, and how we engage the communities in which we live and practice.
