#WorkingForward campaign

The Equality and Human Rights Commission have launched the new campaign, Working Forward, that will make sure that the workplace is the best they can be for pregnant women and new mothers.

The drive is led by British businesses that are trying to point the industry in the right direction regarding pregnancy and maternity rights.

Reports showed that 84% of business said they supported pregnant women and those on maternity leave, which compares to the 77% of mothers who told the Equality and Human Rights Commission that they had a negative or discriminatory experience at work.

The Royal Mail, Barclays, BT and HSBC have supported the campaign to make the best workplace for pregnant women and new mothers. You can see the progress on the EHRC website or follow #WorkingForward hashtag on Twitter.
