Around 3.5 million women aged over 50 years are currently employed in the UK, with symptoms having a huge impact on productivity and motivational levels.

Menopause is considered a taboo subject and as such women do not readily seek help, preferring to remain silent and bring in their own reasonable adjustments such as leaving work, taking a lesser role or reducing their hours.

This creates a personal and economic impact, but in addition employers have a social responsibility to do the right thing.

Menopause is where pregnancy was positioned 30/40 years ago, and today no inclusive employer would consider this to impact on a women’s career choices. Menopause needs the same elevation to normalise it, so it is not seen as a stand-alone or add on subject but a normal part of business.

This 1-hour webinar is designed to encourage conversations around practical needs and support, ensuring positive solutions across all levels of the council, and will cover:

  • Who is affected?
  • Symptoms and how they can be recognised
  • Individualised solutions


  • Impact in the workplace
  • Practical solutions to manage and support menopause at work
