At the inauguration, the director of the Center, Dra. Beatriz Xoconostle Cázares, highlighted the importance of the lactarios in the work centers, since they provide a favorable environment for working mothers to feed their children with breast milk. She also highlighted the efforts made by the CICY on gender equity and labor equality: “I am pleased to know that today we inaugurate the second Lactarium in all of Yucatan, a sign that the CICY is in favor of labor equality and recognition of the women’s work and their role as mothers. ”
