Adoption-Friendly Workplace

More than 25 years ago, Dave Thomas led an initiative advocating for better adoption benefits in the workplace, because to him, it was just “the right thing to do.” The Foundation has carried that legacy forward through its signature Adoption-Friendly Workplace program and annual 100 Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces list, which recognizes organizations that strive to make adoption a supported option for every working parent.
