Spring 2018 Employee Baby Shower

Soon-to-be GW parents were celebrated at GW's Biannual Employee Baby Shower on Thursday, April 19, from 2:00-4:00 pm, specially planned for GW faculty, staff, and their significant others. The shower is a fun and supportive way to learn about helpful GW benefits, such as paid parental leave, childcare, breastfeeding support, and back up care. The event also provides opportunities to meet other GW expecting parents. Congratulations to attendees and their families!
