10/22 World Menopause Day
To celebrate World Menopause Day on Tuesday 18th October 2022, the University will hold an online event from 9:30am-10:30am to discuss the importance of highlighting menopause in the workplace and offering an insight into the Menopause guidance document along with how the document can help all staff.
The University is now offering practical Menopause Awareness Training sessions specifically for line managers , to enable you to support colleagues during the menopause, to help keep them well in work.
A new Menopause Lounge is also launched today, which will offer space for learning and peer support on a monthly basis, starting in December. Please join this MS Teams Group for ongoing information about meeting dates and access to a support forum.
Tracy Hibbert, Director of Human Resources, says, “We welcome the opportunity to highlight the menopause as an important and emerging topic here at Bangor University which is a collective health, wellbeing, and management issue in the workplace. We are committed to breaking the taboo and supporting all managers to enable best practice when implementing support for staff experiencing menopause symptoms at work.”
