How Canopy Champions Women

Canopy supports women by offering flexible work schedules, including flexible start and stop times, part-time roles, and various work-from-home options. 

Paid parental leave is available to all employees, and birthing parents receive 12 weeks of leave at 100% pay. The company also offers new mothers the ability to transition back into their role over several weeks as they and their families adjust.

Canopy champions women with “Women of Canopy,” an employee resource group sponsored by its CFO, Alison Fuller. This group meets monthly to discuss critical topics for women in the workplace and create meaningful connections, utilizing Lean In Circles to create a curriculum for discussion.

The company also supports women by ensuring that all job descriptions are written with inclusive language, and that the interview pool includes qualified women applicants. Interview panels have diverse staff members to ensure it hires the best talent for the job.

Why Supporting Women Is Important to Canopy
