Faegre Baker Daniels Earns Perfect Score in 2019 Corporate Equality Index

For the seventh consecutive year, Faegre Baker Daniels received a perfect score of 100 percent on the Corporate Equality Index (CEI), a national benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to LGBT workplace equality, administered by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation.

FaegreBD is one of 571 major U.S. businesses to earn top marks and designation as a Best Place to Work for LGBT Equality.

“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 global operations and impacting millions of people beyond our shores,” said HRC President Chad Griffin.

The 2019 CEI rated 1,028 businesses, evaluating LGBT-related policies and practices including non-discrimination workplace protections, domestic partner benefits, transgender-inclusive health care benefits, competency programs and public engagement with the LGBT community.

Diversity and inclusion is a core value of FaegreBD. The firm embeds diversity and inclusion throughout its processes, policies, practices, departments and programming. These strategic efforts are overseen by FaegreBD's Diversity & Inclusion Advisory Group and full-time, professional diversity staff. The firm’s LGBT Resource Group contributes to the firm’s diversity and inclusion efforts and serves as a resource to firm leadership regarding LGBT matters.

HRC envisions a world where LGBTQ people are embraced as full members of society at home, at work and in every community.
