Alston & Bird Once Again Rated as a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ+ Equality

Alston & Bird has earned a top rating of 100 percent in the Corporate Equality Index (CEI), an annual survey by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation that measures commitment to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) workplace equality.

The 2022 survey marks the 18th consecutive year that the firm has achieved a perfect CEI score, earning the distinction as one of the best places to work for LGBTQ+ equality.

Alston & Bird’s 100 percent rating recognizes the firm’s satisfaction of all 2022 CEI criteria for creating an inclusive workplace culture, including workforce protections for gender identity and sexual orientation, equivalency in employee benefits, demonstrated commitment to an inclusive culture and corporate social responsibility, and responsible citizenship.

The CEI rating is the most recent honor earned by Alston & Bird for its exceptional workplace culture. Other accolades include:

  • Honored as one of Fortune’s 2021 “100 Best Companies to Work For®,” the 22nd consecutive year that the firm has been singled out by the magazine as a national champion of corporate culture and workplace excellence. 
  • Recognized by People magazine in its 2021 survey of “100 Companies That Care,” ranking as the No. 1 law firm overall among companies highlighted as the top U.S. companies supporting their employees and their communities.
  • Named among Fortune’s 2021 “Best Workplaces for Millennials,” the third time in five years the firm has earned this recognition, with 96 percent of Alston & Bird employees saying the firm is a great place to work for millennials.

Launched in 2002, the CEI has become a roadmap and benchmarking tool for U.S. businesses in the evolving field of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer equality in the workplace. For more information about the index, or to download a copy of the report, visit
