I'm so inspired by the incredible Olympic female athletes who continue to break through barriers, now as working moms who no longer have to choose between competing and nursing their infant children. Ensuring the workplace is a welcoming environment for mothers is critical to all employers' success and to bringing companies one step closer to achieving gender equity. It was a long time coming for Olympic athletes -- let's work on getting all U.S. women greater access to nursing-friendly workplaces.
