Ovia Health’s “Motherhood in America” reports that 70% of working mothers want better breastfeeding support in their workplace. For companies that employ women, this should be a wake-up call: workplaces need to do more to support working mothers. San Francisco is the first city in the nation to require all employers to have a clear lactation accommodation policy and a clean private space to express milk.

Just as the strict boundaries between work life and home life are increasingly fluid, so too are the physical spaces we work in. Forward-thinking office design ensures physical spaces that both reflect and reinforce a company’s culture, mission, and values.
