Family-Friendly Workplace Award
Earlier this month, the Santa Clara County Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) and Office of Women’s Policy (OWP) honored San José Unified with their Family-Friendly Workplace Award, which recognizes employers who have implemented family-friendly policies that address the realities of working families.
The annual award is open to companies of any size that are physically located within Santa Clara County. Employers were asked to complete a self-assessment form in three different categories: 1. Pregnancy & Parental Leave and Accommodations; 2. Lactation Accommodations; and 3. Work-Family Balance.
In total, 24 qualifying companies were awarded Gold, Silver, or Bronze status based on their assessments. San José Unified was one of only 5 companies to receive Gold status by satisfying all criteria in all three categories.
All of the honorees were celebrated at a public meeting and a reception on November 14th at the Santa Clara County Government Center. You can visit Office of Women’s Policy online to see all of the winne.
