Baby Shower centerpiece

GW Employee Baby Shower

Held twice a year, the GW employee baby shower event is specially planned for GW faculty and staff and their significant others who are expecting and/or adopting. The Baby Shower is a fun and supportive way to learn about helpful GW benefits such as parental leave, health benefits for the new child, childcare, breastfeeding support, and back-up care, as well as to network with other expecting colleagues.

You can check out pictures from the Fall 2018 GW Baby Shower as well as previous Employee Baby Showers.
