AHRI WEBINAR SERIES
Fifty percent of humanity experiences the menopausal transition, which usually occurs between the ages of 45 - 55. At least 50% of people who go through this life stage say the symptoms make work more challenging.
1 in 4 consider quitting, this is not just due to the symptoms, it's as much due to the silence around the topic which prevents women from accessing simple supports that can make a world of difference.
In this webinar Thea O’Connor, senior workplace wellbeing advisor will address:
• The facts - what is menopause and how does it affect women?
• Why should we talk about menopause at work? And why now?
• How menopause affects work and how work-related factors affect menopause.
• What working women say they want
• Practical first steps for workplaces interested in putting menopause on their agenda.
• Examples of what workplaces are doing here in Australia.
