About this Webinar

September 1, 2020; 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm ET

Women are a critical and growing segment of the labor force, representing 47% of the U.S. workforce. It is important for employers to prioritize women’s health and wellness needs in the workplace in order to recruit and retain top talent, and to ensure happy and engaged employees. One area in particular that organizations should focus on is establishing a safe return-to-work program for new moms including provisions for lactation support. Not only will this help women more easily transition back to work after having a baby, but will also help them maintain a healthy work/life balance. Moreover, with COVID, employers must prepare to address raising concerns from female employees around pumping breast milk in the workplace. In this webinar, learn how to implement a robust lactation support program that meets federal and state requirements and understand how this will improve productivity, morale, job satisfaction, and ultimately the bottom line.

  • Learn about current workplace trends to promote gender diversity
  • Understand the importance of offering breastfeeding support to women in the workplace
    • Gain strategies to create and implement a lactation support program
    • Integrate lactation services into existing wellness and benefits plans
    • Assess impact on productivity, engagement, and costs
  • Discuss how to write a lactation support accommodation policy
  • Address regulatory and policy issues

This webinar is co-hosted by World Congress and Validation Institute.
