January 21, 2020


NEW YORK—January 21, 2020—For the eighth consecutive year, O’Melveny received a perfect score of 100 percent on the Human Rights Campaign’s 2020 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), the nation’s leading benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ workplace equality.

In addition to a perfect CEI score, O’Melveny also earned the designation as a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality.

“We are proud to be recognized again for our efforts to ensure workplace equality for O’Melveny’s LGBTQ employees,” said Mary Ellen Connerty, O’Melveny’s director of Diversity and Engagement. “We applaud Human Rights Campaign’s commitment to driving diversity across US businesses. Like HRC, O’Melveny remains committed to offering a workplace where all people can enjoy a sense of belonging and feel empowered to contribute and grow.”

The 2020 CEI evaluated LGBTQ-related policies and practices including non-discrimination policies, employment benefits, and public commitment to the LGBTQ community.

The Human Rights Campaign Foundation is the educational arm of America’s largest civil rights organization working to achieve equity for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people. HRC envisions a world where LGBTQ people are embraced as full members of society at home, at work, and in every community. For more information about the 2020 CEI, visit www.hrc.org/cei.
