Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2022 Assessment of LGBTQ+ Workplace Equality

January 27, 2022

BRG received a score of 90 out of 100 in the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2022 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), the nation’s foremost benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) workplace equality. BRG’s score reflects a five-point increase since last year, when the firm debuted in the CEI. BRG is ranked among more than 1,200 major US businesses in the 2022 CEI.

The results of the 2022 CEI showcase not only how 1,271 US-based companies are promoting LGBTQ-friendly workplace policies in the US, but also that 56 percent of CEI-rated companies with global operations are helping advance the cause of LGBTQ+ inclusion in workplaces abroad. This year’s CEI reflects growth across every measurement category, from the adoption of inclusive nondiscrimination policies to equitable healthcare benefits for transgender employees.

The CEI rates employers providing these protections to over twenty million US workers and an additional eighteen million outside of the US. Companies rated in the CEI include Fortune magazine’s 500 largest publicly traded businesses, American Lawyer magazine’s top 200 revenue-grossing law firms (AmLaw 200), and hundreds of publicly and privately held mid- to large-sized businesses.

The CEI rates companies on detailed criteria falling under four central pillars:

  • Nondiscrimination policies across business entities
  • Equitable benefits for LGBTQ+ workers and their families
  • Supporting an inclusive culture
  • Corporate social responsibility
