Events – Embracing Change – Menopause Awareness for Employees

Essex Chambers of Commerce are delighted to be partnering with Kingswood Group Ltd on a series of Menopause Awareness sessions.

A first for the Chambers we are excited to be bringing our Members this topical, important and informative webinar that will help you gain the knowledge and insight into how you can work with your employers to create an inclusive and supportive work environment for yourself.

This webinar provides you, as an employee, with valuable insights and practical strategies to support you during menopause.

By acknowledging and accommodating the challenges faced during this life transition, employers can promote employee well-being, boost productivity, and foster a culture of equality and inclusivity within their organisation.

Menopause is a natural stage in every woman’s life that can, for some, have devastating effects on their health and wellbeing. With just over 72% of women at working age (ONS 2023), we can assume many of these women will experience menopause during their working lifetime, so it is essential for employers to understand and address the unique challenges faced by their female employees during this, often, challenging period.

We will look at the common effects of the menopausal period, dispelling some of the more common myths and misconceptions. We will explore how menopause affects each woman differently and how those affects can be addressed effectively and empathetically in the workplace.

This webinar will provide practical guidance to you on how you can work with your employers to create a supportive work environment while experiencing menopause. We will discuss topics such as;

    • flexible work arrangements
    • reasonable adjustments
    • accommodations that can help alleviate symptoms and enhance productivity.

We will focus on the importance of open communication channels, reducing stigma, and fostering a culture of empathy and understanding.
