Mintz’s Dedication to Equitable Workplace Honored in 2023 Corporate Equality Index

BOSTON – Mintz is pleased to announce that it has achieved a perfect score of 100 on the 2023 Corporate Equality Index, the annual scorecard by Human Rights Foundation for LGBTQ+ workplace equality. The firm has earned a top score for 16 consecutive years.

“Every day at Mintz we promote inclusion, respect, and equity in the workplace through our actions and policies so that we continue to foster an environment where every person thrives and achieves great success,” said Chief Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Officer Narges Kakalia. “We are once again honored to be included in this very important index as a best employer for LGBTQ+ equality.”

Suman Chakraborty, Member and Chair of Mintz Pride commented, “Creating a welcoming work environment is core to Mintz’ mission because our Mintz team members are core to our mission. Achieving a perfect score is not the end for us, but rather an important reminder that we must continue to be a leading employer for members of the LGBTQ+ community.”

The Corporate Equality Index is the nation’s foremost benchmarking survey and report measuring company policies and practices related to LGBTQ+ workplace equality, which is administered by the Human Rights Foundation, the educational arm of the nation’s largest LGBTQ+ civil rights organization.

This year, the Corporate Equality Index includes 1,384 participants from across the Fortune 500, the AmLaw 200, and publicly and privately held mid- to large-sized businesses.

The Corporate Equality Index rates companies on detailed criteria falling 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.

Mintz maintains a longstanding commitment to increasing diversity and inclusion at the firm and in the legal community. The firm’s Diversity Committee helps develop policies and initiatives that impact recruiting, mentoring and, ultimately, retention of diverse employees. The firm also maintains and supports several active affinity groups, such as Mintz Pride for LGBTQ+ attorneys and professional staff, MIATTY, for minority attorneys and senior professionals, and the firm’s Women’s Initiative, for female peer support and mentoring.
