Future proof your business by breaking the stigma around the menopause.
Supporting women through the menopause will increase engagement and loyalty; lower sickness absence and employee turnover.
Fostering an age and gender-inclusive workplace can help tap into the valuable skills and talent of this fast growing segment of the workforce.
By removing barriers to progression for women can help employers close their gender pay gap.
Employers have a legal duty to ensure working conditions do not exacerbate someone's symptoms and that employees do not face discrimination. The implications can be costly both financially and reputationally.
Can you afford not to act?
We work with your organisation to develop a bespoke and proactive approach to Menopause in the Workplace Education and Awareness, with programmes that meet both your strategic and operational objectives.
Programmes can be designed and delivered in a variety of ways including:
For all employees to raise awareness of menopause, open up the conversation and generate engagement.
For Line Managers and HR, to raise awareness of menopause at work and understand how they can take a confident, proactive, and positive approach to supporting their team.
Example Topics (as above plus):
For Menopause Champions, to raise awareness of menopause at work and understand the role of the Champion in the workplace.
By developing a long term systematic approach to menopause in the workplace it will benefit your staff wellbeing, protect your organisational reputation & culture as well as improving talent retention. Left unsupported you risk losing staff at the 'peak' of their experience; leading to increased costs, reduced return on investment and lower productivity.
Typically, 1 in 3 women in the workplace will be peri or post menopause (Ref 1)
44% of women say their ability to work had been affected by the impact of menopause(Ref 3)
Nearly two thirds of women report they have lost motivation to work due to their symptoms (Ref 3)
A long-term health & wellbeing programme including menopause will have at least a 5x return on investment (Ref 2)

Co-Founder & Coach
Caroline combines her extensive corporate executive HR experience spanning over 20 years, latterly as Head of HR for a leading FTSE 250 hospitality brand with her passion for coaching and particularly supporting women in business to be authentic and successful.
We've personally experienced the impact of menopause through our own careers, and therefore understand the thousands of women who's careers are hindered due to a lack of education and understanding.
Looking back we realised that no one was talking about menopause or dealing with the impact of it for employee's or the organisation. It was almost a taboo subject.
By 2025, our mission is to engage with progressive organisations and to educate 100,000 people about the impact of menopause in the workplace, and empower change to benefit individuals and businesses now and for generations to come.
Engage, Educate, Empower – Menopause in the Workplace.
The following are a few of the reviews received by workshop attendees and business owners we've had the pleasure to work with, educate and support during 2022.
So vital every workplace should have it, every woman should be prepared and educated. Well done!
Fantastic 'Menopause Awareness' workshop with Elissa as part of our year long programme of support on the menopause.
Thanks for a very informative & accessible seminar. It is an important topic to discuss frankly and openly, and I was glad to have attended.
Elissa was excellent, I would highly recommend using her again. She has personal experience which always helps!!!
The session was insightful & participants felt motivated! Caroline’s pitch, style, tone and approach was exceptional and fitted the audience well
