Developing Menopause Intelligence in the Workplace  Tuesday 25 January 2022 - 
12.30 pm - 1.30 pm - free lunchtime webinar provided by Devon & Somerset Law Society, open to KLS members. How to make menopause an open and inclusive subject, one that that no one is embarrassed or uncomfortable talking about, thereby creating a supportive environment in which employees feel supported. Informing and educating leaders and managers to understand what menopause is, how it can affect an employee, how they can talk about it and how an organisation can support those going through the menopause means that they can have the right conversations and provide the right support. Making menopause awareness a priority not only makes your organisation an inclusive and supportive place to work, but also improves your organisation's performance.
