Kathryn Colas

Kathryn Colas is a hugely respected voice for women going through the menopause.

The founder and chief executive of the women's advice and support service Simply Hormones, she has become a sought-after media commentator and public speaker, recognised for her work with NGOs, public and private sector organisations in improving understanding of menopausal symptoms. Her aim is to empower women with better information and influence policy and practices to improve their daily lives.

Kathryn became the first and only lay person to be appointed to the medical advisory committee of the British Menopause Society - a post she has held since 2013. She is also a member of the executive committee for Wishes - Action and Support for Invisible Illness.

In 2015, the Government's official Business Champion for older workers Ros Altmann observed in her report 'A New Vision for Older Workers' that "currently, there is no training for line managers to deal with this issue [of the menopause]". Kathryn responded by developing the first and so far only work-based programme for managers and HR personnel, launched in late 2016 and delivered by qualified professionals.
