UM Awarded for Supporting Breastfeeding and Setting Up of Lactation Rooms
UM has always been a supporter of breastfeeding. In 2016, two lactation rooms were established, located in the Administration Building (N6) and Faculty of Business Administration (N22) respectively. Equipped with sofas, end tables, refrigerators, and privacy screens, both lactation rooms provide a comfortable, private environment for nursing female employees to express and store breast milk.
UM’s efforts in supporting breastfeeding by establishing standard lactation rooms in workplace was appreciated at the “Recognition Ceremony for the Promotion of Breastfeeding 2023”, which was organized by the Health Bureau (SSM) of the Macao SAR, Macau Breastfeeding Association and Macau Breastfeeding and Nurturing Promotion Association. This is the fifth time that UM received this award.
