Our policies support families who need childcare and eldercare. They include a robust family planning benefit, which supports staff who want to expand their families through adoption, IVF, and other means. All of our staff are eligible for this benefit, regardless of sexual orientation.
Fair compensation policies
The lowest pay level in the United States is equivalent to the thriving living wage in New York—ensuring that no employee earns below a thriving living wage. This reflects an effort to bring our internal culture and values into further alignment with our grantmaking, which has included efforts to advance a thriving living wage.
Equity review of merit increases
Since 2015, we have conducted annual equity reviews of merit increases: We look at where staff salaries fall within each grade and review by race, gender, age, tenure, and performance to check for anomalies. If we find any, we make adjustments to bring staff salaries up to where they should be, based on performance and tenure.
