Join us for this one-day workshop, as we unpack how women in the workplace might be better supported to deal with the combined challenges of balancing a demanding leadership role, with experiencing perimenopausal or menopausal symptoms, managing change, or supporting the needs of family members.
The CIPD (Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development) states that for every ten women experiencing menopausal symptoms, six say it has a negative impact on their work.  Whilst a 2018 report, in partnership with Santander, highlights that ‘women are eight times more likely to play the primary role in caring for children and are one and a half times more likely to take the lead in caring for adults.’ 
Moreover, guidance by the National Police Chiefs’ Council  indicates that at certain life stages our efficiency, motivation and ability to cope can be significantly impacted by multiple personal factors. Evidence suggests that if symptoms are not managed, there might be an impact on emotional and physical resilience, and the ability to fulfil commitments or ambitions, at both a personal and professional level.
By focussing on latest best practice, lived experiences, and personal insights, we want to explore these challenges and normalise the discussion at work, creating a safe space for individuals to reflect on and approach change.
