Sep 15, 2009

Cadwalader Wickersham & Taft, LLP, one of the world’s leading international law firms, was named among the top companies by The Human Rights Campaign Foundation Corporate Equality Index for the fourth consecutive year. Cadwalader received a score of 95 in the 2010 report, which provides an in-depth analysis and rating of large U.S. employers and their policies and practices pertinent to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender employees (GLBT).

“We are very proud of our consistently high ratings from The Human Rights Campaign,” said Christopher White, Cadwalader's Chairman. “The firm makes great efforts to promote diversity and strives to help all of our personnel understand and support individual differences.”

Cadwalader received perfect scores in 10 of the 11 survey categories, including nondiscrimination policies for sexual orientation and gender identity, sexual orientation and gender identity diversity training, domestic partner health insurance and other benefits, GLBT employee resource support, and sponsorship of GLBT community events. The ratings are based on a comprehensive survey submitted by the firm.

The Human Rights Campaign is the nation’s largest advocacy group for GLBT Americans.
