With Menopausal women being the fastest growing demographic in the workforce, we thought it was time to shake off the taboo and bring the topic to the forefront of discussion.

This event will enable fellow attendees to share experiences and learn something new about Menopause in the Workplace in a safe and comfortable environment. The event will touch on how to deal with menopausal symptoms while at work but will also offer an important insight in how one can be prepared.

Menopause can be a tricky topic to talk about in a workplace, for both the manager and the employee. Each symptom can be different for each woman. It is therefore important to start a conversation and consider what adjustments might be needed to help the employee accordingly – this event will be a great place to start. 

Who should attend?

  • As this event will offer essential advice on how to prepare and adapt to menopausal symptoms in the workplace, it will be equally of interest to those who are not yet at this lifestage as it will to those who are experiencing the symptoms now.
  • Employers/line managers – it is important for employers to understand how to maintain the wellbeing of Menopausal employees and this begins with having the confidence for a conversation, and understanding actions that might be able to be taken to help the employee.

Guest Speakers

Jean Mountain

Jean is the Founder and Co-Chair of Enterprising Women, along with Eileen Richards MBE. In 2015/16 she was also the President of the Chamber, having been on the board since 1997.

Jean has had a fantastic career in business, running two highly successful companies since 1985 (a rubber stamp and print management company), before now owning her own designer clothing business, The Dressing Room based in Mansfield Woodhouse, which has in turn, developed to include many corporate clients.

Since starting Enterprising Women some 22 years ago, both Jean and Eileen have been champions for the empowerment of women in business, having active involvement in the monthly events and of course, the annual awards.

At this event Jean will be speaking about her personal Menopausal journey – so far – including the unexpected, the bad and even the ‘fun’ bits. Jean will enlighten delegates on the realities of running a business during the Menopause, how you can start preparing but also how you can continue succeeding.
