“I’m a strong advocate of providing benefits to parents, including paid parental leave. That’s why as a co-founder of Airbnb, I’ve ensured that we provide paid parental leave for all new parents. I’m myself a father of two young children. I understand the challenges of balancing work with parenthood, but I also recognize how parenthood can make employees more aware and efficient. Parenting builds patience and empathy, and those who are provided time to effectively parent become more effective employees.”

Nathan Blecharczyk, Co-Founder, Chief Strategy Officer and Chairman of Airbnb China
