Covington Awarded Top HRC Rating for Tenth Consecutive Year

November 16, 2017

WASHINGTON—The Human Rights Campaign Foundation (HRC) has awarded Covington a perfect score of 100 percent for the tenth consecutive year on its Corporate Equality Index (CEI), a national benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices pertinent to LGBTQ workplace equality. Covington is among 609 major U.S. businesses that earned a perfect score this year and will be recognized in HRC’s “Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality” list.

“Covington is extremely proud to be recognized by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation for creating an inclusive workplace for everyone,” said Timothy Hester, the firm’s chair. “Receiving a perfect score for ten consecutive years demonstrates our long standing commitment to promote and protect the rights and interests of the LGBTQ community.”

Covington’s 100-percent rating reflects the firm’s sexual orientation and gender identity non-discrimination protections, sexual orientation and gender identity training, and support for same-sex partners of lawyers and staff with health insurance, bereavement and family leave policies, as well as its contributions to LGBTQ community organizations.

“The top-scoring companies on this year’s CEI are not only establishing policies that affirm and include employees here in the United States, they are applying these policies to their operations around the globe and impacting millions of people beyond our shores,” said HRC President Chad Griffin.

The Human Rights Campaign Foundation is the educational arm of America's largest civil rights organization working to achieve equality for LGBTQ people. For more information on the 2018 Corporate Equality Index, or to download a free copy of the report, please visit www.hrc.org/cei.
