For Employers - Employer Awards

We wish to recognize employers in Kansas that provide workplace support for nursing employees through the “Breastfeeding Employees Support Award”. Employers are evaluated based on criteria for three levels of support services: Gold, Silver, and Bronze. Employers meeting requirements of one of the three criteria levels will be recognized with an award, recognition on and in a press release to local media. All forms of recognition are voluntary.
