Menopause Awareness

75% of the teaching workforce in the UK is female, which means understanding menopause - a natural transition in a woman’s life - is vitally important to the education sector. According to The Menopause Charity, 10% of women leave the workforce as a result of menopause. In this awareness workshop, we offer a deeper understanding of menopause, including when it can affect women, how it can affect them and routes to managing symptoms both in and out of the workplace. Our aim is to normalise discussions around menopause, empowering women to take control of their health and making sure that the right support is in place that enables them to thrive in the workplace.

Workshop Overview

  • In this 60-minute workshop we cover the stages, symptoms and routes to managing symptoms of menopause as well as learning ways to support women going through menopause both in the workplace and at home.

  • The interactive Menopause Awareness workshop aims to normalise discussions around menopause, whilst at the same time not normalising any suffering. Through ongoing conversations such as these we can start to encourage a more menopause friendly environment – where women feel comfortable talking about how it is affecting them, without any shame or embarrassment, know where to go for advice and support, and others feel able to give that support.

  • Menopause isn’t just an issue for ‘women of a certain age’. 75% of staff working in education are female but menopause is a whole-school issue. For younger women it can be a great opportunity to learn more about their hormones, for partners of women it can be beneficial to understand potential symptoms and ways to support during menopause and Mangers and Senior Leaders can benefit from considering how to work towards a more inclusive workplace.

"From a complete novice and with no real understanding of this as a topic, the session was structured really well and provided excellent insight and supported a great understanding."

Line Manager, Newcastle-upon-Tyne

The menopause workshop normalised conversations around menopause. The links to resources provided were a great place to start for researching into how to improve workplace environments and provide support for those experiencing symptoms.
