    Given the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic the Maryland and DC Breastfeeding Coalitions will be postponing their 11th Annual Breastfeeding-Friendly Workplace Awards and 7th Annual Healthcare Professionals Awards.

    Since 2010, well over 100 businesses have received the Breastfeeding-Friendly Workplace Award, recognizing demonstrated support for breastfeeding through a conducive office environment. Our coalitions want to maintain the momentum of the awards and continue to support Maryland and DC area businesses and healthcare provider offices when it comes to breastfeeding in the workplace.

    • We invite employers to complete a survey about how their business or workplace supports breastfeeding efforts during this COVID-19 pandemic. (https://forms.gle/rvjwUTDPegqtSDd19)
    • We invite employees to complete a survey about breastfeeding in the workplace during this COVID-19 pandemic. (https://forms.gle/iZrPDjYhifPhnBeZ6)
    • Lastly, we welcome the opportunity to provide accolades to workplaces or businesses providing exceptional supports at this time. You can provide information through either survey.
