A fertility benefits leader and national infertility nonprofit association take over New York City to support the millions of people who need family building care
NEW YORK, April 18, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Progyny, Inc. (Nasdaq: PGNY), a leading benefits management company specializing in fertility and family building benefits solutions, in its capacity as an official partner for National Infertility Awareness Week 2023, and RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association today announced both organizations will light the top of the Empire State Building in orange, the official color for infertility awareness, and ring the Nasdaq Stock Market Closing Bell on Tuesday, April 25, 2023.
National Infertility Awareness Week brings attention to the far-reaching impact of infertility and the struggle that millions of people endure to build their family. With the CDC reporting that one in five married women in the U.S. deal with infertility, Progyny and RESOLVE share a common goal of removing the stigmas and barriers that stand in the way of building families.
“Progyny is honored to play a role in raising awareness of infertility and supporting the millions of people in need of family building services, this week and always. We believe our efforts will be amplified beyond New York City and create a lasting impact globally,” said Pete Anevski, Progyny’s CEO. “As the fertility and family building benefits provider of choice for hundreds of the world’s leading employers, we have already helped tens of thousands of people on their family building journeys and are eager to continue to provide care for those who are struggling to realize their dreams of parenthood.”
To recognize the millions who struggle with infertility, Progyny, RESOLVE, and leading employers who recognize the importance of providing value-based family building care will participate in Nasdaq’s Closing Bell Ceremony on April 25, 2023, from 3:45 P.M. to 4:15 P.M. Eastern Time.
To amplify the message even further, Progyny and RESOLVE, along with fertility advocate, NAACP and Daytime Emmy® award-winning television host, acclaimed pop-vocalist, and founder of the Faith & Familia Foundation, Adrienne Bailon-Houghton, will light the top of the Empire State Building orange to recognize and give voice to the millions of people who struggle to build their families. This will be the second consecutive year the skyline of New York City and the Empire State Building will be lit in honor of National Infertility Awareness Week.
“Having experienced first-hand how difficult it can be to build a family, I am honored to be a part of National Infertility Awareness Week and join Progyny and RESOLVE in bringing awareness to this disease and fighting for access to family building care,” said Adrienne Bailon-Houghton. “The Faith and Familia Foundation was born out of the idea that everyone should be able to receive the support they need when dealing with infertility, and with these two organizations I feel hopeful that we can achieve that dream.”
“RESOLVE would like to thank Progyny for supporting and recognizing National Infertility Awareness Week as an important national movement that brings attention to the barriers millions of people face when trying to build a family,” said Barbara Collura, President/CEO for RESOLVE. “When people, whether in New York City or through social media, see this iconic building lit in our awareness orange and visually recognize their struggles, they will feel seen. When you feel seen, you find a way to use your voice to create change.”
