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.
