January 28, 2021
Foley Hoag LLP has achieved a perfect score ranking on the Human Rights Campaign's 2021 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 LGBTQ 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: non-discrimination policies across business entities; equitable benefits for LGBTQ workers and their families; supporting an inclusive culture; and corporate social responsibility.
Foley Hoag is committed to an environment of inclusion for all lawyers and business professionals, including for individuals of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
"We are very pleased that Foley Hoag has once again earned a perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign's Corporate Equality Index for 2021," said Foley Hoag Director of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, Rosa Nunez. "We believe it is of the utmost importance to have policies and practices in place that foster an environment where all our attorneys and business professionals are treated fairly and equally. This enables us to attract and retain the best people.”
The Human Rights Campaign Foundation is the educational arm of America's largest civil rights organization working to achieve equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual transgender and queer people. The organization envisions a world where LGBTQ people are embraced as full members of society at home, at work and in every community.
