As a University, we are committed to changing how we speak about menopause at work and supporting those experiencing this life transition.

To mark World Menopause Day in October, we are running a series of events and workshops which are open to all staff. To kick things off, we’re delighted to be hosting menopause expert, Kate Muir for an engaging and informative session on everything you need to know about menopause.

A founding member and activist for The Menopause Charity, Kate is a menopause expert, writer, and the producer of three ground-breaking Davina McCall women’s health documentaries, including Sex, Myths and the Menopause for Channel 4. She is the author of Everything You Need to Know About the Menopause (but were too afraid to ask).

This event is free and open to all colleagues, whether you’re going through perimenopause or menopause yourself, or are providing support for a partner, family member, friend, colleague or a member of your team who you line manage.

This is a fantastic opportunity to learn what to expect from and how to manage menopause, with the chance to ask questions on topics or issues you want to know more about. There will also be a chance to network with colleagues from across the University.

Fostering an outstanding and inclusive community is a key part of our University Strategy, and supporting the wellbeing of our staff is of fundamental importance to us as an organisation. I am really grateful to the Menopause Support Network for organising this event for World Menopause Day in October. I warmly encourage colleagues to join me for what I am sure will be an interesting and informative session. Professor Jane White, Vice-President (Community and Inclusion).
