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

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

In selecting companies for this year’s Best 100 list, Working Mother gave particular consideration to inclusive benefits for families. The Broad Institute earned this distinction in part because it offers gender-neutral paid parental and benefits to help Broadies locate and afford childcare.

“I'm proud to see Broad recognized for our commitment to diversity and inclusion,” said Andy Porter, Chief People Officer. “It’s important that every Broadie have the opportunity to be at their best every day, and this means creating a culture that represents, supports, and engages everyone.” 

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.
