We know that conversations about women’s differing health needs – whether related to fertility struggles, reproductive health or menopause – can be uncomfortable for all concerned. That’s why we are challenging ourselves to start normalising those conversations, because only once business leaders and managers are informed about women’s health can they put effective policies in place to support the women they work with. Only once a workplace culture is created that enables women to feel supported and safe to talk about their health can everyone truly feel empowered to perform to their full potential.
We want to start a long overdue conversation and we look forward to raising awareness of women’s health issues, influencing employers, educating managers, and making a small contribution to creating a healthier workplace for everyone.
