The Broad Institute is a Working Mother 100 Best Company

By Broad Communications

Working Mother magazine has recognized the Broad Institute as one of its 100 Best Companies for our leadership in creating progressive programs in the areas of advancement of women, flexibility, childcare, and paid parental leave.

The Broad Institute earned this distinction in part because of its policies on professional development, paid parental leave, working hours, and exceptional benefits to support new parents, including childcare financial assistance. (See what the magazine had to say about Broad.)

“All caregivers, and especially parents, must balance an extraordinary number of responsibilities,” said Andy Porter, Chief People Officer. “It’s critical to promote a culture where everyone has the opportunity to flourish at home and work. We are proud to be recognized by Working Mother for our efforts, because we are committed to building a culture that allows every Broadie to thrive.”

“With input from the community, the Broad’s leadership and administration worked with members of our deeply engaged group, Women@Broad to understand—and implement—the kinds of policies that would make the biggest difference for working parents,” said Eric Lander, President and Director of the Broad Institute. “We couldn’t be more thrilled that the innovative, impactful programs that grew out of these discussions are now being recognized nationally."

The 100 Best Companies are featured in the October/November issue of Working Mother and on Working Mother’s website. See the full list of 100 Best Companies.
