For the seventh consecutive year, Goodwin was named a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, an honor bestowed upon businesses that receive a top score of 100 on the organization’s Corporate Equality Index Report.
Goodwin has strived to create a culture of inclusion at the firm through efforts such as Pride@Goodwin, which focuses on recruiting, retaining and advancing LGBTQ talent. The initiative also seeks to foster a welcoming, inclusive and supportive environment, build a strong network of LGBTQ professionals and allies, and create inclusive professional development and career advancement programs that benefit all Goodwin attorneys and professional staff.
The Human Rights Campaign Foundation is America’s largest civil rights organization working to end discrimination and achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer equality. The Corporate Equality Index was first published 18 years ago and evaluates employers with over 500 employees based on key criteria such as non-discrimination policies across business entities, equitable benefits for LGBTQ workers and their families, and support for an inclusive culture and corporate social responsibility.
