WIBF is delighted to co-host with Refinitiv our next Hot Topic event on the Menopause.

Menopause Specialist Dr Theodora Kalentzi MBBS (Equiv.), MSc, MRCGP, DRCOG from Medical Prime will lead this interactive discussion focusing on three key areas.

  • Menopause – what is it?
  • The impacts on women, men and business
  • Top tips for managers, teams and organisations – best practice and research, including how we can better support individuals with the menopause in the workplace

Menopause affects half of the population at some point and the physical and mental effects can impact their working lives, too. Even though it is experienced by women, menopause affects men as family members, friends, colleagues and line managers.

Despite this, menopause is still a taboo subject. This means that it is largely misunderstood and surrounded by myths and stereotypes. The majority of employers do not address menopause within health and wellbeing programmes for their staff, because they don’t recognise it as an important issue or because they are unsure of how to approach it. Join us to develop your knowledge and understanding of the menopause.

We ask attendees to invite a male colleague or family member to this event so that we can continue to break down barriers and raise the profile of this important topic.


12:15 Vivienne Artz, President of WIBF & Global Chief Privacy Officer at Refinitiv, will open the event
