Menopause is something that all women will experience in their life however it’s not something that’s well understood or openly spoken about. The symptoms of menopause will almost certainly affect how you work but it’s often seen to be a taboo subject which leaves women struggling in silence.
In this week’s episode I interview Deborah Garlick from Henpicked Menopause who’s on a mission to ensure women are supported throughout menopause through awareness, education and workplace training.
- What menopause is, how it can affect you and our personal experiences
- Deborah’s advice for getting the help you need from your GP
- How you can talk about menopause at work and how it’s impacting you
- Ways that leaders can support colleagues that are going through menopause
- What organisations can do to be more aware, supportive and menopause friendly
Throughout the interview, Deborah provided fantastic, practical tips for both individuals, leaders and organisations that will help to make a real difference for perimenopausal and menopausal women at work.
Many of the questions on this podcast were inspired by discussions with my LinkedIn connections. I’ll be continuing the conversation on my LinkedIn profile and invite you to connect with me there: https://www.linkedin.com/in/carlamiller1/
