During this round table, colleagues working in UN organizations will share their experiences on breastfeeding promotion, protection and support in their working places as well as information they have about breastfeeding policies in the organizations where they work, including maternity/paternity leave, breastfeeding breaks, facilities for breast milk expression and storage.

The exchange of information and experience is intended to reflect personal points of view and elicit discussion with those attending the round table as well as participants via WebEx.
