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.
