King & Spalding Again Earns Top Score in HRC Report on LGBTQ Workplace Equality

WASHINGTON, Jan. 28, 2021— King & Spalding has once again earned a top score in the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s annual Corporate Equality Index, the nation’s foremost benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ workplace equality. This is the ninth consecutive year the firm has achieved a perfect score in the index.

The CEI is a national benchmarking tool on corporate policies and practices supporting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender and queer (LGBTQ) workplace equality. A top score earns King & Spalding the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s designation as one of the Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality.

“From the previously unimaginable impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, to a long overdue reckoning with racial injustice, 2020 was an unprecedented year. Yet, many businesses across the nation stepped up and continued to prioritize and champion LGBTQ equality,” said Alphonso David, Human Rights Campaign president. “Thank you to the companies that understand protecting their LGBTQ employees and consumers from discrimination is not just the right thing to do—but the best business decision.”

King & Spalding fosters and maintains an environment where every employee is free to be their authentic selves. The firm also encourages discussions and collaborations on efforts to promote LGBTQ equality including ongoing support for various LGBTQ-related community organizations.
