The Human Rights Campaign Foundation has once again honored Thompson Coburn for its pioneering commitment to policies and practices that promote the equal treatment of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees.
This marks the ninth consecutive year that Thompson Coburn has earned a perfect score of 100 points in the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index (CEI) and Best Places to Work Survey, a national benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to LGBT workplace equality.
The firm joins the ranks of 517 major U.S. businesses that also earned top marks this year. Thompson Coburn was one of 112 law firms nationally to receive the 100 percent ranking. The firm was among just 15 companies headquartered in Missouri that achieved a 100 percent ranking, including Edward Jones, Express Scripts, and Monsanto.
The Corporate Equality Index and Best Places to Work Survey rates organizations on a 1-100 scale and examines a range of 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. Thompson Coburn’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.
