O’Melveny’s Streak of Top Corporate Equality Score from Human Rights Campaign Reaches a Decade

February 7, 2022


NEW YORK—February 7, 2022—For the tenth consecutive year, O’Melveny has earned the highest possible score on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index, the nation’s foremost survey of corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ+ workplace equality.

In addition to another perfect CEI score of 100 in 2022, O’Melveny also earned recognition as a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ+ Equality.

“We are honored that the Human Rights Campaign has again recognized our efforts to ensure workplace equality for O’Melveny’s LGBTQ+ employees,” said Mary Ellen Connerty, the firm’s director of Diversity and Engagement. “Like HRC, we believe a vigorous diversity, equity, and inclusion program is both a moral and business imperative, and we remain committed to ensuring that our workplace is one where all our people can enjoy a sense of belonging and feel empowered to contribute and grow.”

The 2022 CEI evaluated companies on the criteria of four pillars: non-discrimination policies across business entities, equitable benefits for LGBTQ+ workers and their families, support for an inclusive culture, and corporate social responsibility.

The Human Rights Campaign Foundation is the educational arm of the Human Rights Campaign, America's largest civil rights organization working to achieve equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people. The HRC Foundation seeks to make transformational change in the everyday lives of LGBTQ+ people, shedding light on inequity and deepening the public’s understanding of LGBTQ+ issues, with a clear focus on advancing transgender and racial justice.
