Speaker: Jo Brewis
To mark Menopause Awareness Day 2019, City will be hosting the event ‘Menopause in the workplace: tackling the taboo’ on Thursday 17 October at 12.00.
Menopause is often regarded as a private, even taboo subject, which has nothing to do with employment. However, employers need to pay careful attention to menopause for a range of demographic, economic, legal and social responsibility reasons.
Guest speaker Professor Jo Brewis will be outlining these cases, as well as identifying some of the effects that menopause symptoms can have on women’s experiences at work and the effects of work on symptoms. This will be followed by an overview of good practice around menopause in organisations.
