Description

We look forward to welcoming you to this one day workshop exploring menstruation at work. We will cover the menopause, endometriosis and other gynaecological health conditions and the relationship to employment. A full speaker list can be found on the network website.

Please feel free to check out the Menstruation Research Network Twitter account in the meantime. You can find us at: https://twitter.com/menstruationRN?lang=en. The hastag for this workshop is #MRNEvent2.

Our two keynote speakers are Prof. Joanna Brewis and Prof. Joanne Duberley.

Prof. Joanna Brewis, The Open University: 'Menopause and the workplace: new directions in research'.

Prof. Brewis works at The Open University Business School, where she is Head of the Department for People and Organizations. Her research interests include the intersections between gender, bodies and organizations, which for the last few years has meant her focusing on menopause in the workplace context. She also has an abiding interest in academic practices in management and organization studies, such as research ethics and peer review.

Prof. Joanne Duberley, University of Birmingham: 'The menopause taboo and work: The impact of menopause on the working lives of women in the police force'.

Prof. Duberley is the Deputy Pro-Vice Chancellor (Equality) and Professor of Organisation Studies at the University of Birmingham. Central to her research is an interest in the concept of career. Over the last twenty years she has developed research examining the impact of gender, ethnicity, social class and age on careers in a variety of contexts including defence, professional service organisations and the police in the UK. She co-directs the Work Inclusivity Research Centre at Birmingham with Dr Holly Birkett.
