Let’s Talk About Menopause

Date: 24th March 2020

Time: 10am – 12 noon

Venue: AESSEAL New York Stadium, New York Way, Rotherham, S60 1FJ

Overview: Whilst some women sail through menopause, 3 out of 4 experience symptoms and as many as 1 in 4 have serious symptoms. However, around half have never consulted a healthcare professional about their menopause. Research also shows that the majority of women are unwilling to discuss menopause related health problems with their line managers, or ask for any support they may need.

How is your organisation currently supporting menopausal women at work? How confident do your line managers feel talking about menopause? Would you know how to support your employees? In this session we’ll cover why we’re talking about menopause, what menopause is, it’s symptoms and how to provide the right support. We’ll also include a information to help you understand what you can do in your own organisation.

Book your ticket on Eventbrite.
