Diversity & Inclusion

Family Friendly New Mexico – Business Toolkit


The last several years have brought increasing focus to diversity and inclusion inside companies and organizations. Increasingly, employees and job-seekers are asking for more information about the diversity of a company’s workforce, and what efforts are being made inside organizations to create an inclusive culture, where employees of any sex, race, gender identity, sexual orientation, or other external factors that have historically influenced an individual’s advancement in an organization. Further, employees, customers, and members of the public have become acutely sensitized to companies and organizations talking about diversity, but not actually enforcing policies or practices that lead to a more diverse workforce, with a more diverse composition in their leadership teams.

Paid Personal Leave

Personal leave can be used when an employee (or their family member) is sick, for personal time off, for vacation, or professional development/education. Rather than making distinctions between personal time off and sick leave, more employers are combining all paid time off (PTO) for employees to use as they choose.

Paid Maternal/Paternity Leave

Paid Parental/Maternity/Paternity leave is employment-protected time off for mothers and fathers to allow them to bond with a new child, whether it is the birth of a new child, an adoption or foster child. Leave can usually be taken prior to the child’s arrival as well.

DID YOU KNOW? The U.S. is one of only about three countries in the world that does not guarantee paid leave for new parents?

Paid Family Leave

Paid family leave provides benefits to employees who need time off to take care of a child, a spouse, a parent or an adult child with a serious health condition, or who are ill or disabled.

  • Care for a sick family member
  • Bond with a new child (either through birth, adoption, or foster care)
