There have been some exciting developments
Break The Stigma
NHS England chief executive, Amanda Pritchard, has called on other employers to follow suit to help “break the stigma”.
She also said that many employees were “silently suffering” and were either too embarrassed to broach the subject or experience a “lack of support” when they did.
Adding that no one should feel their only option is to “turn their back on their career” over menopausal symptoms, she added. “It’s our responsibility as leaders to ensure this doesn’t happen any longer.”

There's still a way to go
We are delighted to see these moves by NHS England, however there is a long way to go.
Our mission to improve working conditions and break the stigma for every person suffering through menopause at work is stronger than ever.
And it all starts with the knowledge and tools to make a change. That’s why we’re hosting a FREE lunch and learn webinar to support employers.
Learn what every employer needs to know about menopause at work, and leave with Top Tips on how to retain and support your staff.
1 in 4 women consider leaving their jobs because of menopause, and 1 in 10 actually do!
Menopause impacts women’s work: 44% of women said their ability to work had been affected, 61% said that they had lost motivation at work due to their symptoms, and 52% said they had lost confidence.
In the UK, women of menopausal age are the fastest-growing working demographic, yet menopause continues to remain a taboo subject especially in the workplace, whilst women continue to suffer.
This session is for employers to understand the reasons to be menopause aware at work, the impact menopause has in the workplace and top tips for supporting employees
