Covington Awarded Top HRC Rating for Fourth Consecutive Year

December 8, 2011

WASHINGTON, DC, December 8, 2011 — For the fourth consecutive year, the Human Right Campaign Foundation has awarded Covington & Burling the top rating of 100 percent in the 2012 Corporate Equality Index.

Covington’s 100 percent rating reflects its written non-discrimination policy; sexual orientation and gender identity training; support for same-sex partners of employees with health insurance, bereavement and family leave policies; and its contribution to LGBTQ community organizations.

“Covington is honored to receive a perfect rating from HRC again,” said Andrea Reister, co-chair of the firm’s diversity committee. “This reflects Covington’s longstanding dedication to LGBTQ equality. We strive to continue our efforts and commitment to providing an exemplary workplace for all employees.”

HRC's annual report provides an in-depth analysis and rating of large U.S. employers and their policies and practices pertinent to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees. Businesses rated 100 percent are recognized in HRC’s “Best Places to Work” list.
