World Menopause Day 2020

Health entry in dictionary

World Menopause Day takes place 18 October 2020.  

Studies have shown that menopause symptoms can have a significant impact on attendance and performance in the workplace, which makes menopause not just a female issue, but an organisational issue. 

With just under one million women working in the NHS, reducing the stigma attached to the menopause is vital so that more people will talk openly about it.

Tools and resources

To support staff in the workplace, you can access our menopause in the workplace web page for information on:

  • how menopause can affect women at work
  • practical guidance for employers on how to improve workplace environments 

Listen to our Menopause and the workplace webinar which focuses on how to support colleagues with menopause in the workplace.

Read our Becoming a menopause aware and supportive employer blog where Karen Wright, associate director of workforce for Velindre University NHS Trust shares her own experience of going through the menopause at work.

What’s coming up?

Arden & GEM CSU is hosting a series of free bite-sized webinars on Friday 16 October and Monday 19 October to raise awareness of the menopause and provide support to those who are affected.
