Once again, Womble Carlyle has been honored for its support of LGBT equality. The Human Rights Campaign’s 2017 Corporate Equality Index has awarded the super-regional powerhouse a perfect score of 100 for the third year in a row.
The 2017 HRC Corporate Equality Index measures corporate policies and practices related to LGBT workplace equality. The measured criteria include:
Womble Carlyle satisfied all of the criteria and has been designated a Best Place to Work for LGBT Equality. In all, 517 major U.S. businesses earned perfect scores on the 2017 HRC Corporate Equality Index.
“We are proud to support our LGBT employees, and we have made a deliberate effort to ensure we have an inclusive workplace,” said Womble Carlyle Chair Betty Temple. “We support efforts to promote equality and fairness for all.”
Kevin Lyn, Co-Chair of Womble Carlyle’s Diversity Committee, said, “The rights and concerns of the LGBT community matter, and they are important to Womble Carlyle’s diversity efforts. We are glad the HRC agrees that we have created a welcoming and inclusive environment for our LGBT employees and their families.”
The Human Rights Campaign is America’s largest civil rights organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality.
