Working Forward

Join our campaign to support pregnant women and new mothers


The Equality and Human Rights Commission has launched a national campaign, led by British business, that will make our workplaces the best they can be for pregnant women and new mothers.

We have brought together a coalition of employers at different stages in their journey, who will share their advice, knowledge, and expertise with their peers.

Join us in making workplaces the best they can be for pregnant women and new mothers.

Sign up and pledge your support. Tweet your support using #WorkingForward and join our LinkedIn group.
