Arent Fox Named ‘Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality’ by Human Rights Campaign
The results of this year’s CEI showcase how US-based companies are not only promoting LGBTQ-friendly workplace policies but helping advance the cause of LGBTQ inclusion in workplaces abroad.
“These companies know that protecting their LGBTQ employees and customers from discrimination is not just the right thing to do — it is also the best business decision,” said HRC President Alphonso David. “In addition, many of these leaders are also advocating for the LGBTQ community and equality under the law in the public square.”
Arent Fox’s Diversity & Inclusion program is active through three main initiatives. OutFox is a mentor program designed to help connect LGBTQ and allied lawyers, paralegals, and alumni, Arent Fox Minority Attorneys Group maintains a strong commitment to diversity and strives to create a workplace that embraces different perspectives and cultures, and AFWomen advocates for women lawyers’ leadership firmwide, across industries, and within the community. For more than 15 years, the firm has annually provided Diversity Scholarships to second-year law students who demonstrate a commitment to practicing law at the highest level.
