Robins Kaplan Named Breastfeeding-Friendly Workplace
November 20, 2020
Robins Kaplan is pleased to announce that the firm has been named a Breastfeeding Friendly Workplace by the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) for its commitment to supporting breastfeeding employees by creating a workplace lactation support program.
“The firm strives to make the workplace a supportive and encouraging environment for working mothers,” says Chandra Kilgriff, Chief Talent and Diversity Officer. “From expanding our parental leave policy a few years ago to ensuring access to a comfortable space to breastfeed, we are continuously reviewing our policies and procedures to make sure they best serve the needs of our working parents.”
The designation acknowledges Robins Kaplan’s commitment to acting as a model for the community by supporting nursing employees. The designation is achieved by adopting a written policy and educating staff about it; ensuring adequate break time for breastfeeding employees; providing a clean, private place to pump breast milk; and demonstrating a strong commitment to supporting breastfeeding in the workplace.
This is the MDH’s recognition program, which was created and is supported by the state Women, Infants and Children program (WIC) and the Statewide Health Improvement Partnership (SHIP).
