Dorsey Receives 100% Rating on Corporate Equality Index for Tenth Time

MINNEAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–International law firm Dorsey & Whitney LLP announced today that for the
tenth consecutive year it has received a 100% rating—a perfect score—on
the 2016 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 Foundation. Dorsey
joins the ranks of 407 major U.S. businesses which also earned top marks
this year.

“In this 2016 Corporate Equality Index, hundreds of major businesses
responded to our new standards for workplace equality with exceptional
leadership. Dorsey not only meets these standards, it goes above and
beyond the call of duty, making commitment to equality a fundamental
aspect of its corporate values,” stated HRC Foundation Workplace
Equality Program Director Deena Fidas.

The 2016 CEI rated 1,027 businesses in the report, which evaluates
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. Dorsey’s efforts in satisfying all of the CEI’s
criteria results in a 100 percent ranking and the designation as a Best
Place to Work for LGBT Equality.

“Strengthening our community through diversity and inclusion is a Dorsey
core value,” noted Managing Partner Ken Cutler. “Receiving a 100% rating
once again is testament to the quality of our workplace and to the
strength of this Firm.”
