Every year, 8 million U.S. workers rely on adoption to build their families. Yet less than half of companies offer an adoption-specific benefit for family planning.  We'll discuss how adoption has changed in the last 20 years, how the large family-building benefit companies treat adoption, and examine the pros/cons of an adoption-focused point solution in creating an inclusive culture.

Learning Objectives:

  • Hear how the landscape of adoption has been completely transformed over the last two decades;
  • Discover how adoption applies to more employees than you may think;
  • Learn why 'fertility' or 'infertility' coverage is not enough;
  • Hear how your current 'adoption' benefit treats employees;
  • Ensure truly inclusive adoption benefits.
