Why Act Now?

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?

Why is the menopause a workplace issue?

  • Women of menopausal age are the fastest growing working demographic in the UK
  • 8% of women reported they have not applied for promotion
  • The number of successful employment tribunals against employers is growing year on year
  • Approximately 75% of women in menopause are in work
  • Over 60% of women experience symptoms & 25% will experience severe symptoms
  • 10% of women have left their jobs due to menopause symptoms (that represents approx 333,000 women across the UK)
  • 14% have reduced their working hours

Caroline Walters

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.
