Here at The Motley Fool, we embrace “Foolishness” — the uniqueness each of us brings to the table to make our conversations and experiences together that much richer. Our DIBS principles — Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging = Success — encourage Fools to bring our whole selves to work every day, including this month as we celebrate Pride (in a physically distanced but socially connected way!).
The spirit of Foolishness also guides our approach to supporting our employees’ development and well-being — including our top-notch benefits. The Motley Fool is proud of our commitment to support Fools or dependent family members in transition, and to continue offering full health-care coverage to our transgender Fools.
That commitment will not change after last week’s reversal of a 2016 rule in the Affordable Care Act that required health-care workers, hospitals, and insurance companies that receive federal funding to provide or cover care related to gender transition. Our health-care coverage plans remain the same for all Fools, spouses, domestic partners, and dependent family members, and we support our LGBTQIA+ Fools with pride.
