Making its list debut, this software company is a real wow. Birth mothers get 26 fully paid weeks off for maternity leave (or 16 for adoption, foster care and surrogacy), which helps retain nearly 90% of those who take it; transition plans and alternative work arrangements assist them when they come back. If they have children with special needs, they can find support in the employer’s AccessAdobe Network; live webinars spell out what to do for their kids’ education. Everyone gets $1,200 toward childcare costs annually; subsidized backup care is available 100 hours per year. Executive job shadowing, mentoring circles and leadership summits propel women.
