Shook Repeats Perfect Score in 2022 Corporate Equality Index

For the 14th consecutive year, Shook earned a perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign’s 2022 Corporate Equality Index. The 100% score acknowledges Shook on HRC’s roster of the “Best Places to Work for LGBTQ+ Equality.”

The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Corporate Equality Index is recognized nationally as the measure of how businesses rank on corporate policies, practices and benefits relevant to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer employees. Shook was evaluated on multiple criteria, including inclusive equal employment opportunity policies, equal employment benefits and publicly demonstrating support for LGBTQ+ equality. 

Shook’s best practices and initiatives to advance and support LGBTQ+ equality include an employee support resource group and the firm’s Project Affirmation, a pro bono name change and gender marker amendment clinic serving the transgender community in and around Kansas City.
