October 4, 2010
CHICAGO – Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP is pleased to announce that for the second consecutive year, it has received the highest-possible rating (100-percent) on the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation’s 2010 Corporate Equality Index Survey. The survey, released October 1, indicates that Katten achieved its rating based on employee responses to questions related to the firm’s nondiscrimination policy, domestic partner benefits coverage and employer-supported resources for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) attorneys and staff.
“We continually strive to grow and maintain an inclusive and supportive work environment for all of our employees,” said Vincent A.F. Sergi, Katten’s national managing partner. “We are pleased that the HRC Foundation’s survey results show that our employees recognize the firm’s commitment to providing equal protections, benefits and resources to our LGBT employees.”
Since its inception in 2002, the HRC Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index has provided businesses with a blueprint for establishing and maintaining inclusive workplaces for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees. By inspiring and engaging all Americans, the HRC Foundation strives to end discrimination against LGBT citizens and realize a nation that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for all.
