The Business Coalition for Gender Equality (BCGE) encourages businesses to enable workplace gender equality through family and care-friendly working conditions. It is an essential component under WGE, and one of the ways to support them is by providing lactation rooms. As BCGE would like to promote the best practices of business taking the lead in this initiative, we are launching a campaign in August to remind our member community and outreach for others to follow steps as well.
BCGE seeks to promote the importance of family and care-friendly policies and workplace lactation rooms to enable breastfeeding and help parents nurture and bond with their children in early life when it matters most.
Earlier this week, BCGE announced an exciting opportunity for member firms to apply for our mothers’ room project, wherein three successful member applicants will receive support from BCGE and our technical partner Alive & Thrive to establish a mothers’ room, train staff about creating family-friendly work environments, and promote their commitment to WGE and D&I through impactful communication.
