August 1-7 is World Breastfeeding Week and Corporate Voices wanted to take this opportunity to highlight the work we have done in this area. With recent changes in federal laws surrounding breastfeeding in the workplace, Corporate Voices worked with Abbott Nutrition and Working Mother Media to develop the Workplace Lactation Toolkit. It gives employers high-quality resources and tools to comply with this new federal requirement, and to help them establish successful workplace lactation programs that work for all workers, including lower-wage and hourly employees. You can access the toolkit here: http://corporatevoices.org/lactation
And keep a look out for a new lactation toolkit from Corporate Voices and Abbott for military families: the Military Lactation Toolkit, which will have specific information for each branch of the military regarding breastfeeding and pumping policies.
