Don’t mind the gap, mend it!

SHIMA: Aiming to mobilise BIMA members to ‘mend the gap’ and overcome gender and other equality gaps, creating inclusive workplaces and increase business performance for everyone.

Join us for an enlightening and crucial discussion on supporting employees through the menopause transition, featuring Dee Walsh, a renowned menopause coach.

In today’s rapidly evolving workforce, it’s essential for businesses to adapt and cater to the diverse needs of their employees. With an increasing number of women working later into their careers, it’s essential that we address the unique challenges they may face during the menopause stage.

During this insightful event, we’ll delve into how businesses can play a pivotal role in supporting their employees through this significant life transition. Dee Walsh will share invaluable insights on the menopause experience and offer practical strategies for businesses to implement supportive measures.

Whether you’re a leader looking to foster a more inclusive workplace or an employee seeking guidance on navigating the menopause journey, this event is for you. Join us for an open and informative discussion that aims to empower both men and women to create a more supportive and understanding work environment for all. Together, we can ensure that no one feels compelled to exit their careers prematurely due to the challenges of menopause.

Limited to 12 attendees to allow for discussion.
Chatham House Rules apply and places are strictly limited to one per organisation.
