THE WHAT? WBA-owned No7 has launched a new initiative in partnership with AllBright designed to give perimenopausal and menopausal individuals practical support and expert advice to tackle the challenges that menopause presents in the workplace.
THE DETAILS Changing the Face of Menopause at Work, as the campaign has been named, was created in recognition of the need to support people during this life-stage so they can continue to thrive in their careers; one in 10 women aged between 45 and 55 have left employment as a result of their menopause symptoms.
The initiative comprises a free, five-part video course featuring experts across a wide range of industries as well as a series of Her Story micro podcasts featuring stories from a diverse group of women sharing their menopause stories and advice in the workplace.
THE WHY? Munnawar Chishty, No7 Global Vice President and Beauty Category Director, comments, “We know that many can experience significant challenges in the workplace during menopause. As a business, we are working hard to provide the right support for our team members, and we are proud to have recently been independently accredited as a Menopause Friendly Employer by Henpicked: Menopause in the Workplace.
“As a brand that is committed to supporting all women and helping them fulfil their potential, we wanted to take tangible action to help more people navigate through these challenges. By partnering with AllBright to create a range of free-to-access expert resources, we hope to help continue to break down stigma around menopause in the workplace and give people who experience menopause the confidence to thrive.”
