The Equitable Fertility and Family Building Checklist

Employers are increasingly prioritizing family-friendly benefits as a way to attract and retain top talent and support diversity and inclusion initiatives at a time when family is a top priority. We expect that companies will support a diverse workforce and a culture of inclusivity with equitable benefits, however, even with the best intentions, fertility and family building benefits can often fall flat.

Conventional fertility and family building benefits typically discriminate against LGBTQ+ individuals and couples and single parents by choice by requiring a pre-certification or a diagnosis of infertility. This can often be hidden in the fine print. The one-size-fits-all requirements limit access to necessary treatment and fail to acknowledge the many paths to parenthood, discriminating against the members of a workforce who may need it the most.

At Progyny, we believe everyone should have access to the care they need to build their family. We created the Equitable Fertility and Family Building Checklist to help organizations carefully evaluate their current fertility and family building benefits or examine their options. Use it as a guide to ensure that your family building benefits are truly accessible by all members of your workforce.
