We are a founding member of the Working Forward Initiative.
A major national initiative launched in September 2016, calling on British businesses to make our workplaces the best they can be for pregnant women and new mothers and ensure that female talent is nurtured and valued for the long term. Established by the Equality and Human Rights Commission and driven by a coalition of like-minded organisations, making up a supportive business community where peers can share best practice and work together to ensure employees have a positive experience during this crucial time in their working lives.
Employers can pledge your commitment to supporting pregnant women and new mothers here.
