Ice Miller Pays for Traveling Moms to Ship Breast Milk Home

Effective Jan. 1, 2018, Ice Miller LLP will join organizations such as Johnson & Johnson and Twitter in offering its nursing mothers a breast milk shipping program, so women travelling for work can send their breast milk home at the Firm’s expense. Ice Miller will work with Milk Stork to offer this program.
 
Nursing mothers will have two options to send refrigerated breast milk home while traveling for work. One option allows the nursing mother to take refrigerated break milk home in a convenient carry-on tote bag provide by Milk Stork. The second option allows the mother to ship the milk home overnight. Once travel plans are finalized, the nursing mother can visit Milk Stork’s website to make the desired arrangements.
 
This program will save mothers from having to leave enough breast milk at home before travelling and spare them the trouble of storing and transporting breast milk, which can often be challenging due to TSA regulations.
 
“We applaud the efforts of our female team members who contribute to the Firm’s success,” said Judy Okenfuss, an Ice Miller managing partner. “Innovative programs, such as the breast milk shipping program, help parents achieve that coveted work-life balance and demonstrate our commitment to cultivating and maintaining a diverse workforce.”
 
Ice Miller often is recognized for its reputation of fostering diversity and elevating the unique talents female staff bring to the table. The Firm earned a place among Working Mother’s “50 Best Law Firms for Women” in 2017, a recognition it has received consistently over the last decade. Additionally, Ice Miller was ranked among the Best Law Firms for Women by Law360’s 2017 Glass Ceiling Report. The Firm ranked fourth for U.S. firms with 300-599 attorneys. The American Lawyer ranked Ice Miller as having the eleventh highest percentage of female equity partners of all Am Law 200 firms.
 
In addition to the breast milk shipping program, Ice Miller recently announced an extension of its attorney parental leave policy. For more information about the Firm’s enhanced parental leave, click here
