Working Through Menopause
Menopause may be one of the most challenging times in a woman's life, and there is not nearly enough education, resources, and discussions around it. It is time to start talking more about menopause - with communication, knowledge and empathy; menopause doesn't have to be an exasperating process women endure alone.
Experiencing menopause and its associated symptoms can significantly impact women's careers, performance and overall wellbeing at work. Whereas employers have become better at understanding and catering to the pressures of motherhood, the needs of menopausal women are often overlooked or completely ignored, and this needs to change.
Menopause occurs at a time when women are likely to be assuming leadership positions, and failing to support them through this natural life stage puts organisations at risk of losing the expertise of highly experienced women. Menopause must be demystified and destigmatised, and this process can certainly start with the education of both men and women in the workplace.
In this webinar, we introduce you to Shelly Horton and Dr Ginni Mansberg, the Founders of the online workplace course 'Don't Sweat It" - built to educate workplaces on peri-menopause and menopause support.
- Peri-Menopause & Menopause the basics
- Solutions for managing symptoms
- The “hormone glass ceiling” and impact on women at work
- The importance of workplace awareness
- What workplaces can do
- Ways to support the women around you
