Blackstone Extends Maternity Leave to 16 Weeks

As reported today in the Wall Street Journal, Blackstone is proud to announce that the firm’s maternity leave has been extended to 16 weeks in support of the many exceptional women at the firm and those we hope to attract. The financial services industry has historically struggled to recruit and retain women, but by instituting robust policies that support working mothers and all employees as they integrate their work and family responsibilities, we hope to help make asset management a more attractive industry for women. Our hardworking employees balance incredibly active lives, and Blackstone is proud to support important priorities both in the workplace and at home.
