Texas Tech Seeks to Become a Mother-Friendly Workplace

Texas Tech University has been chosen by the Texas Department of State Health Services to conduct a pilot program to test strategies and tools to implement a mother-friendly workplace. The program will include the construction of five locations on campus that will serve as lactation support facilities. By becoming a mother-friendly workplace, the university hopes to attract working mothers as employees, to shorten maternity leaves, and to lower employee absenteeism.

The program is funded in part by a grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta.
