Diversity and inclusion

A chat about menopause

To mark Menopause Awareness Month, our Women Lawyers Division discuss experiencing menopause within the legal profession and at work generally.

With employers, and colleagues, having a role to play in supporting women going through this significant life transition, it’s important to normalise the topic and welcome open conversations.

Awareness is key and using relevant dates from the diversity calendar, such as Menopause Awareness Month (September), World Menopause Day (18 October) and International Women’s Day (8 March), is a great opportunity to organically begin curating more inclusive and supportive working environments for women.
