About this event
This informative and engaging session aims to equip the attendees with further knowledge on the perimenopause and the menopause, and how employers can support their staff.
The perimenopause and the 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, the perimenopause and the menopause can affect men too – family members, friends, colleagues, line managers etc.
Despite this, the perimenopause and the menopause is still a taboo subject. This means that it is largely misunderstood and surrounded by myths and stereotypes. Most employers do not address the perimenopause and the menopause within health and well-being programmes for their staff because they do not recognise it as an important issue and/or because they are unsure of how to approach it.
Let’s talk about the perimenopause and the menopause – how does it affect women (and not only)?
