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.
