Programs & Projects: Major Programs
Educate the Educators and Educate the Media
These unique programs are intended to better inform two groups of professionals who have arguably the most profound (and too-often negative) impact on public attitudes toward adoption and everyone it touches, especially children. Our trainings and materials have already proven highly effective, and we plan to grow both programs in the years to come. For more information on this program, contact Executive Director Adam Pertman at firstname.lastname@example.org or go to the Educate the Educators and Educate the Media pages.
Encouraging employers to support adoption by their employees
Most employer health plans cover the costs of childbirth, but assistance for adoption is much less common. To foster corporate
support for adoption, the Adoption Institute created forums to encourage companies to add adoption benefits to their employee
benefit packages and to educate employees about adoption opportunities. Funded by State Street Bank, four Boston seminars were conducted in 2001-2002.
