i work for a large international corporation that has as one of its main clients another large international corporation. the client is a pioneer in green technology.<br><br>
they (the company for which i directly work) recently began a campaign to encourage employees to submit "bright ideas". mine is for my location to set up a "Lactation Station". we have over 500 ppl at out branch, and i am amazed at how many of them are pg women.<br><br>
i found an article from Liz Baldwin on lll.org, and some pdf info on aap.org.<br><br>
has anyone written up such a proposal? i want to hit from the "green" angle, and also touch on the $ the company would save in health care costs and lost man (woman!) hours.<br><br>
any help would be appreciated!!! TIA <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Where are you located? Do you have a perinatal coalition nearby? Through my job I do some work with my local perinatal coalition and back to work bf support is one of our focuses. If we have an interested company we can go in, do a powerpoint presentation on all the benefits of workplace support, then we can give some goody bags for new moms. Maybe your local coalition has something similar?
