Family Friendly Environment
In coordination with International Breastfeeding Week (Aug 1 – Aug 7), the UC Cooperative Extension in San Luis Obispo County launched a new Breastfeeding and Family Friendly Workplace Guidance. In compliance with UC policy, the department recognizes the importance of workplace support for staff who choose to breastfeed and the nutrition and wellness benefits of breastfeeding. This guidance designates breastfeeding/pumping spaces and provides guidance for supervisors to support breastfeeding employees. In addition, since many department employees staff work remotely at off-site locations, we have developed guidance and will make available, mobile lactation room supplies for breastfeeding employees to utilize as needed.
