Fish & Richardson Receives "Best Place to Work" Designation from the Human Rights Campaign
Garners a perfect 100 percent score for best in class practices
Boston, MA, December 11, 2013 - Fish & Richardson has been designated as a "Best Place to Work" by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) in its recently-released 2014 Corporate Equality Index, which assessed 934 U.S. companies on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) equality. Fish was one of only 81 law firms to receive the highest possible rating of 100 percent on a set of key criteria, which reflects the best in class practices of LGBT workplace equality.
"We as a firm recognize the core values of diversity and inclusion in both what we do and who we are, so we are thrilled to achieve a perfect rating in the Human Rights Campaign’s 2014 Corporate Equality Index," said Ahmed Davis, Principal and National Chair of Fish's Diversity Initiative. "But we cannot now rest on our laurels. This recognition reflects our commitment to treating everyone fairly in the corporate setting, and sets a high standard that we will strive to meet in the years ahead."
Overall, 304 companies achieved a 100 percent rating. Ratings are based on providing equal benefits for same-sex partners and spouses; ending benefits discrimination for transgender employees and dependents; demonstrating firm-wide organizational competency on LGBT issues; and demonstrating firm-wide public commitment to the LGBT community.
Founded in 1980, the Human Rights Campaign is the nation's largest civil rights organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality, representing more than 1.5 million members and supporters.
