“Alston & Bird is proud to once again be recognized by CEI as a leader in providing benefits, opportunities and protections for the GLBT community,” said Richard Hays, Alston & Bird’s managing partner. “We are committed to making our work environment ideal and this designation, in addition to the ongoing accolades from FORTUNE magazine and the Great Place to Work Institute, prove we are achieving our goals.”The Human Rights Campaign is America’s largest civil rights organization working to achieve GLBT equality with more than 750,000 members and supporters nationwide. It effectively lobbies Congress, provides campaign support and educates the public to ensure that GLBT Americans can be open, honest and safe at home, at work and in the community.
