HRC President Alphonso David told Reuters that the legal industry consistently outperforms other industries for its proportion of top-scoring firms.

Seventy-one percent of the Fortune 500 and 91% of all businesses on the index offer transgender-inclusive health insurance coverage, up from zero in 2002.
