Menopause Policy Roadshow

Posted by crm28 at Nov 15, 2017 05:55 PM |
Our University has officially launched our new menopause policy but the discussion continues!

Three months ago, academics from our renowned School of Business presented their report ‘Menopause transition: effects on women’s economic participation’ to the UK Government’s Equalities Office. Our academics, led by Professor Jo Brewis, found that many women tend to feel that they need to cope alone and are too embarrassed to discuss menopause in the workplace, despite the fact that menopause can have a real effect on some women’s productivity.

Since the publication of the report, we have been determined to end the taboo surrounding menopause so that nobody feels that they have to cope alone.

Already we have held our hugely popular inaugural ‘Menopause: Let’s Talk About It Workshop’ and our pioneering new menopause policy is now in place. We are the first UK university to introduce a menopause policy and now that the policy has been established, it’s time to get the show on the road and end the taboo surrounding menopause!

The Menopause Roadshow is a series of 1 hour events taking place all over campus. All staff are invited to attend Menopause Roadshow events which will give you the opportunity to ask any questions about the policy and discuss menopause and its effects openly. The Roadshows will also ensure that everyone understands the possible effects of menopause and how the new policy can support staff in the workplace.

Details about Menopause Roadshows currently planned to take place are below. To book a place, please contact staffhwb@le.ac.uk.
