Women’s health: let’s talk about endometriosis
Members of the Women Lawyers Division have come together to discuss endometriosis and how it affects women's health.
We joined Peppy Health, an organisation offering personalised menopause support, for an event to mark Menopause Awareness Month and the launch of our collaborative support resource for individuals and organisations within the legal profession.
With over half of the legal profession being female, and a growing number of mid-life women remaining in their careers, it’s imperative that we lift the stigma on the menopause and all issues faced by women.
The resource covers suggestions to organisations on adjusting working environments, what actions and behaviours are discriminatory and how to curate a supportive and inclusive culture.
It also offers advice to all women, both currently experiencing the menopause and those that wish to be prepared and involved in paving the way for their generation.
A fantastic panel discussed best practice for employers, their personal experiences and what the landscape looks like for women within the working world.
