When it comes to fathers, this policy is especially beneficial. Fathers are now able to take paternity leave and enjoy extended time with their children just as mothers can. This policy is extended to biological parents, adoptive parents, and surrogates, allowing them to hold a significant role in the development of their child. The policy also extends to cover assisted reproductive services, reproduction assistance for same-sex couples, and fertility preservation, in addition to adoption and surrogacy reimbursements.
Kara Gruver, Bain & Company’s chief talent officer commented: “Equal parental leave for all parents is an important step to move us forward on gender equity, ensuring all of our people at Bain can thrive, both personally and professionally. This includes offering new parents the time they need to bond with their children, support their significant others and adjust to life as an expanded family.”
