About this Event

Menopause… removing the taboo!

Did you know that menopausal women are the fastest growing population at work? Or that around 8 out of 10 menopausal women are in work?

Whilst some women sail through menopause, 3 out of 4 experience symptoms and as many as 1 in 4 have serious symptoms. However around half have never consulted a healthcare professional about their menopause.

Research also shows that the majority of women are unwilling to discuss menopause related health problems with their line managers, or ask for any support they may need.

Here at WHH, we’re passionate about the wellbeing of our colleagues and that means talking about menopause openly.

So what are we doing?

On 12th November 2019, we’re holding two menopause awareness sessions to get the conversation started:

For colleagues: 9.00am - 5.00pm

What do you know about the menopause? Are you, a member of your family, friend or colleague experiencing menopause and want to know more? This session covers what menopause is, its symptoms, ways of managing them, thinking about long term health and where help is available.

For line managers: 12.00pm - 5.00pm

How confident do you feel talking about menopause? Would you know how to support one of your team or a colleague? In this session we’ll cover why we’re talking about menopause, what menopause is, it’s symptoms and how to provide the right support.

Book on one of these sessions through the Eventbrite
