Discussion Summary: Strengthening LGBTQ+ Families

LGBTQ+ family formation options are expanding, from surrogacy to IVF to adoption and more, but LGBTQ+ people still face many challenges. In February, Eidos brought together experts from academia, research, and business to discuss the landscape of family wellness and the work that still needs to be done. We were honored to host Emma Schwartz, Patrina Sexton Topper, and Bianca Wilson for a conversation with our own Jessica Halem about LGBTQ+ family formation. Resources documenting their conversation are available below.
