The CEI is an annual initiative of the HRC Foundation, the largest LGBTQ+ civil rights organization in the world. The CEI rigorously assesses company performance on a range of criteria under key central pillars: non-discrimination policies, equitable benefits for workers and their families, transgender-inclusive health benefits, inclusive culture, outreach and engagement efforts to the broader LGBTQ+ community, and corporate social responsibility work.
Diversity, equity, and inclusion are central to GLG’s policies and cultural values, as well as to GLG’s award-winning Social Impact work, which delivers GLG’s platform and services to the social sector. Over the years, GLG has consistently taken steps to create a safe and welcoming environment where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.

In 2023, GLG also launched a partnership with myGwork, the world’s largest platform and professional network for the LGBTQIA+ business community, as part of our efforts to make DE&I a core tenant of our hiring practices.
“Creating a workplace where all employees across our locations globally are empowered to bring their true selves to work and thrive is mission critical for GLG,” said GLG Chief Human Resources Officer Lee Gavin. “We invest great attention and resources to cultivate this environment and are always looking for opportunities to do even better, so it’s an honor to earn recognition from an organization so dedicated to equity as the HRC Foundation.”
