Menopause at work – how psychology can inform workplace support and practice
9 February 2023 at 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree – £18.00
In this session Tatiana will take a psychological lens to explore the experiences of menopause at work. She will introduce a critical perspective to examine what is helpful or not when designing supportive workplaces for menopausal women. We will invite the participants to consider the diversity of experiences and its implications for policies and practice. The session will conclude with how getting this right can be beneficial to all workers (not only menopausal employees).
