Our speaker, Helen Tomlinson, Head of Talent and Inclusion, Adecco Group, is looking forward to sharing perspective and insight as to what employers are doing to support women going through perimenopause and menopause, how it links more broadly to women’s health and the challenges that can be faced. She will share what works well and give examples of some experiences that haven’t been as positive.
Women over 50 are the fastest growing demographic in the workplace. This entirely natural but sometimes difficult period of 51% of the populations life should not be a time to step down, step back or step out of their career – if employers provide education, support and allyship women can go on to have arguably the most productive and fulfilling time in their careers post menopause.
Discover policies and practices you can implement to support women going through perimenopause or menopause and foster an organisational culture that values the well-being of all employees, regardless of their gender or stage of life.
