Menopause is a natural phase in every woman’s life, however there is still a stigma attached to it.
With menopausal women now the fastest growing demographic in the workplace, it’s more important than ever for employers to have a good understanding of the menopause and how they can support colleagues through the transition.
This event looks at the symptoms and misconceptions surrounding the menopause, as well as the legal position and support available for both employees and employers.
