Community Team

Meet the Team Lead

Crystal Gold, MS, has been the chair of IBC since June 2012.  As a breastfeeding mother, community organizer, and a technology manager, she brings a unique approach to the community group.  

The Community Steering Committee focuses on the normalization of breastfeeding at home, at work, and in the community by enacting initiatives whose objectives are to help nursing mothers feel welcome and supported in the community. ​We address the social and political aspects of breastfeeding in the state of Indiana’s plan to support the U.S. Surgeon General’s Call to Action.

These action steps include:

  • ​ensuring that breastfeeding is recognized as the normal and preferred method of feeding infants and young children,
  • increase protection, promotion and support for breastfeeding mothers in the work force, 
  • educating and training child care providers and employers about breastfeeding and how to be supportive and meet the changing laws,
  • educating mothers about the availability of safe banked donor milk for fragile infants and encouraging donation by viable mothers.


Your input on these topics is needed and we would love to have your involvement. There are many ways to become involved. We will be looking for people to participate in event planning, booth design, press releases, and many other event and marketing focused projects. We are also actively reaching out to the coalitions around the state to update their contact information and get feedback about what is needed within the communities. Please consider exploring how you can contribute, and join us.
