Fenwick has received a score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index (CEI) for the 14th consecutive year, earning the Equality 100 Award and distinction as a Leader in LGBTQ+ Workplace Inclusion. An award event for top scorers will be held in New York City in January 2024.
The CEI is the nation’s foremost benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies, practices and benefits pertinent to LGBTQ+ workplace equality. 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; and,
- Corporate social responsibility.

In addition to receiving the Equality 100 Award, the firm earned the highest Mansfield Rule Certification (6.0 Plus) from Diversity Lab for achieving at least 30% diverse lawyer representation in leadership roles among other diverse talent benchmarks.
