Accredited workplaces

BFW provides support to thousands of employees and hundreds of sites, to smaller single site employers. Some of them have overcome significant cultural challenges to create a supportive workplace.  

By gaining accreditation as a Breastfeeding Friendly Workplace we can meet the health, family and cultural needs of our women, which in turn provides the Air Force with the strategic and capability benefits of optimised recruitment and retention, reduced absenteeism, greater effectiveness and productivity, whilst demonstrating our commitment to workplace diversity

- WGCDR Kelley Stewart, Royal Australian Air Force

You would be joining these organisations as a leading family-friendly workplace:
