Foley Hoag Receives Perfect Score on Human Rights Campaign's 2020 Corporate Equality Index

January 24, 2020

Foley Hoag LLP has achieved a perfect score ranking on the Human Rights Campaign's 2020 Corporate Equality Index. Businesses receiving a rating of 100 percent in the report are recognized by the Human Rights Campaign as a “Best Place to Work for LGBT Equality.”

Foley Hoag earned the 100 percent rating as a result of its commitment to four main criteria as described by the Human Rights Campaign: providing equal benefits for same-sex partners and spouses; no benefits discrimination for transgender employees and dependents; demonstrating a firmwide organizational competency on LGBT issues; and demonstrating a firmwide public commitment to the LGBT community.

Foley Hoag is committed to an environment of inclusion for all lawyers and staff, including for individuals of all sexual orientations and gender identities. To further this mission, and guide the firm’s diversity and inclusion initiatives, Foley Hoag recently hired Rosa J. Nunez in the newly created role of Director of Diversity & Inclusion.

"We are thrilled that Foley Hoag has once again earned a perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign's 2020 Corporate Equality Index," said Nunez." The firm has been advocating for the civil rights of members of the LGBT community for decades, notably in cases related to domestic violence and vindicating the civil rights of transgender prisoners.”

The Human Rights Campaign is America’s largest civil rights organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality. By inspiring and engaging all Americans, the organization strives to end discrimination against LGBT citizens and realize a nation that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for all.
