As an employer who received a perfect score, AlixPartners continues to be among the ranks of companies who satisfy all of the CEI’s criteria and receive the designation “Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality.”
“Our perfect score in this year’s Corporate Equality Index reflects our firm’s hard work and dedication to workplace equality and underscores our commitment to creating a more inclusive environment for everyone at AlixPartners,” said Simon Freakley, CEO of AlixPartners. “I am extremely proud that we have once again been recognized by the HRC as a top workplace for LGBTQ employees. Advancing diversity, inclusion, and equity is essential to being a great place to work.”

We need to continue to drive for equality, equity, diversity, and inclusion—not just in the workplace but also in our communities. I thank our colleagues who devote their time and energy to those issues. They are truly making difference.”
