Davis Polk again scored a perfect score of 100 on Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s annual Corporate Equality Index (CEI), the nation’s foremost benchmarking survey and report measuring company policies and practices related to LGBTQ+ workplace equality. To earn a top rating, employers must take concrete steps to establish and implement comprehensive policies, benefits and practices that ensure greater equity for LGBTQ+ employees and their families.

The CEI criteria are reviewed annually and periodically change, raising the bar to reflect best practices for LGBTQ+ inclusion and to drive companies to improve upon their commitment to the community. The 2022 criteria fall under four central pillars:

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