Moms and Work: Taking Lactation out of the Closet

It’s time to welcome motherhood to the workplace. As a critical strategy for retaining highly qualified women in the workforce—and thus a bottom-line concern for all businesses—lactation rooms are no longer just the concern of working moms. A panel of experts will discuss the movement to bring lactation rooms out of the closet; review best practices for bringing facilities into compliance; demonstrate how they fit into the workplace well-being conversation; and highlight smart lactation space design that considers both the physiology of the task at hand, as well as the constraints of the modern workplace and public buildings.
