At Carrot, our mission is to make fertility care accessible and affordable to all regardless of age, race, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or geography. That’s why today we’re excited to share that the Carrot Card has been named one of the Best Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Products in the Inaugural Anthem Awards.
The Carrot Card solves the biggest problem people face when accessing high-quality fertility care — cost. More than 80% of people who undergo fertility treatments have little to no coverage and, on average, accrue $30,000 in debt. The Carrot Card, a flexible fertility pre-funded card for employees, is a first-of-its-kind product that allows people to use employer-sponsored funds to pay for treatment and services — including fertility preservation, IVF, adoption, and gestational carrier services — without having to pay out-of-pocket first and wait to be reimbursed.
The Anthem Awards launched in response to the prevalence social good has taken within the national conversation and cultural zeitgeist in recent years. The inaugural competition received nearly 2,500 entries from 36 countries worldwide. The Anthem Awards aim to define a new benchmark for impactful work that inspires others to take action in their communities by amplifying the voices that spark global change.
“It is our distinct honor to recognize the work that brands, organizations, and individuals are all making to create an impact in their community,” said Jessica Lauretti, Managing Director, The Anthem Awards. “We launched this platform to show the world that all corners of our culture, from sports and entertainment to business leaders and celebrities, are all standing up to say it is time for systemic change and that social good is what we value as a society.”
