Description

Who should attend?

This online training is vital for employers, Line Managers, HR and Occupational Health teams, especially those working closely with women.

Our experts will provide you with a clear overview of women’s health issues, and policies and practices to support women in the workplace.


Why attend?

According to Public Health England (2018), a third of women in England are suffering from severe reproductive health problems. This includes premenstrual dysphoric disorder, endometriosis, infertility and the menopause; all conditions which can cause particular difficulties at work. With women representing just under half (46.5% in 2017) of the total labour force in the UK (The World Bank, 2017), reproductive health is an issue which needs consideration in the workplace.

Stigma around reproductive health can prevent women from disclosing and accessing the information they need to manage their symptoms at work. In research carried out by the University of Nottingham for the British Occupational Health Research Foundation, over half of the women surveyed had not disclosed their menopause symptoms to management (Griffiths et al 2010). Many women were too embarrassed to discuss the issue or feared their manager would be embarrassed, causing them to suffer in silence at work.

As such, improved awareness and recognition of reproductive health in the workplace is crucial in supporting women at work.


What will you learn?

By taking part in the webinar you will:

  1. Be aware of common reproductive health issues experienced by women, including premenstrual syndrome, endometriosis and menopause.

  2. Understand how these conditions can affect women at work.

  3. Be aware of what the law suggests about reproductive health in the workplace.

  4. Be able to support women in the workplace through the right practices, policies and provision.
