O’Melveny Once Again Earns Top Marks for LGBTQ Equality from Human Rights Campaign

January 28, 2021


NEW YORK—January 28, 2021—For the ninth consecutive year, O’Melveny received the best possible score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2021 Corporate Equality Index, the nation’s foremost benchmarking survey and report measuring 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 honored the Human Rights Campaign has again recognized our efforts to ensure workplace equality for O’Melveny’s LGBTQ employees,” said Mary Ellen Connerty, O’Melveny’s director of Diversity and Engagement. “Like HRC, we believe a robust diversity, equity, and inclusion program is both a moral and business imperative, and we remain committed to offering a workplace where all our people can enjoy a sense of belonging and feel empowered to contribute and grow.”

The 2021 CEI evaluated LGBTQ-related policies and practices, including non-discrimination policies, employment benefits, and corporate social responsibility.

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 2021 CEI, visit www.hrc.org/cei.
