Menopause in the workplace bitesize webinars

As part of this October’s World Menopause Month, Arden & GEM hosted a series of bitesize webinars to raise awareness of the menopause and support those who are currently affected.

With almost one million women working in the NHS and nearly half of those between 45 and 64 years of age, menopause needs to be considered an organisational issue, with studies demonstrating that menopause symptoms can have a significant impact on attendance and performance at work. With our population now living longer, working longer, and with so many women working in the NHS, it's vital that staff are supported to stay well and thrive in the workplace.

To raise awareness of menopause in the workplace and offer support to those staff members who are currently affected – whether experiencing symptoms themselves or providing professional or personal support to those that are – Arden & GEM hosted a series of bitesize webinars on Friday 16 and Monday 19 October. With renowned experts and speakers from a wide range of organisations, including the NHS, Remploy, MenoHealth, Eulogie and Henpicked, the series offered information, understanding and signposting to resources for this important workplace issue.
