Alston & Bird Receives “Equality 100 Award: Leader in LGBTQ+ Workplace Inclusion” from the Human Rights Campaign

Alston & Bird has once again earned a top rating of 100 percent on 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, earning the designation as recipient of the “Equality 100 Award: Leader in LGBTQ+ Workplace Inclusion.”

The 2023 survey marks the 19th consecutive year that the firm has achieved a perfect CEI score.

Alston & Bird’s 100 percent rating recognizes the firm’s satisfaction of all 2023 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 2023 “100 Best Companies to Work For®,” the 24th 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 2023 survey of “100 Companies That Care,” one of only two law firms among companies highlighted as the top U.S. companies supporting their employees and their communities.
  • Named among Fortune’s 2023 “Best Workplaces for Women” for creating consistently positive experiences and opportunities for women.

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
