Powered by Southwire’s DEI and Talent Development teams, Southwire Link is an application-based mentorship program open to all team members company-wide. The 12-month program helps participants gain insight into business dynamics and foster meaningful professional connections. Now in it’s third year, Southwire Link has expanded to three cohorts per year and is being recognized for its impact and results. In August 2023, Southwire Link was named as a top 10 recipient for the Diversity Impact Awards™.
It’s more than just a room — it’s a signal that new mothers are welcomed, valued and understood. People who breastfeed typically need to pump two to four times per day. That need doesn’t go away when a nursing mother is at work. That’s why it’s essential to provide new moms transitioning back to the workplace with dedicated lactation rooms that are comfortable, sanitary and safe.
In 2022, Southwire launched a partnership with Nessel to standardize dedicated spaces for nursing mothers across our organization. Our goal is to have this standard for clean, comfortable and compliant nursing mothers’ stations integrated into every company facility by the end of 2024.
