Folger Levin received the bronze level award from the Healthy Mothers Workplace Coalition for the firm’s dedication to providing a mother- and family-friendly workplace. The award was presented at the coalition’s second annual awards ceremony on September 15, 2014 in San Francisco. This year’s twenty-four honorees represented a range of businesses, organizations, and law firms in San Francisco, including Twitter, Bi-Rite Market, the Legal Aid Society-Employment Law Center, and UCSF’s National Center of Excellence in Women’s Health.
The Healthy Mothers Workplace Coalition is a collaboration of nonprofit organizations, governmental agencies and employers dedicated to improving the working conditions, health and equity of new mothers and their families. The coalition was formed to tackle inequities and gaps in policy that lead to challenges in balancing healthy motherhood and child development with a successful career. It aims to improve working conditions and ensure lactation accommodations, while educating and supporting employers and working parents through such activities as the Health Mothers Workplace Award.
