Event Summary

One in ten women who worked during the menopause have left a job due to their symptoms.* Less than 5%** of UK businesses offer a dedicated menopause policy and there is a nationwide shortage of HRT. It is essential that your organisation takes steps to support and retain menopausal women in the workplace.

Women experiencing the menopause are now the UK’s fastest growing work demographic, key industries such as the NHS, education, retail and local government need to prepare policies that support women from perimenopause to menopause and through to post menopause.

Join Westminster Insight’s Menopause in the Workplace Conference to understand your legal duty of care. Explore your responsibilities as an employer to retain women.

You will hear from the UK Menopause Taskforce on policy developments, including new legislation from the Women’s Health Strategy. What is the menopause? We will explore how the menopause differs for every woman and where to access resources and guidance.  Understand the signs and symptoms of the menopause. Develop a menopause policy that is adaptable and can support a variety of needs. Learn how to improve retention and professional outcomes for women by implementing your menopause policy holistically.

Tackling workplace stigma and taboo around the menopause, you will learn how to talk about the menopause with confidence and create cultural change in your organisation.
