In the workplace, menopause champions play a key role. They provide support to employees who may be struggling with menopause and work to create a positive work environment where employees feel comfortable talking about menopause. Menopause Champions also work to increase menopause awareness and education among employees, reducing stigma and creating a more empathic workforce.
Menopause champions at work may do a variety of things, such as:
An interest in menopause and willingness to support those with menopause issues at work. A desire to learn and keep up-to-date with the latest research and developments around menopause. Strong communication and interpersonal skills. Ability to provide support and resources to those who need it. A Menopause Champion is someone who takes action to raise awareness of menopause and challenge stigma. Stigma is when we make assumptions about how menopause will affect someone's behaviour.
Anyone with a passion for menopause can become a Menopause Champion where you can learn the basics of how to identify and support someone struggling with menopause symptoms, and be part of a wider network of champions who are working to improve menopause awareness.
If you’re an employer, choosing someone to become your workplace Menopause Champion is a good way to show your commitment to improving menopause support in the workplace. Alternatively, if you are an individual who is passionate about menopause, you can reach out to your workplace and offer to become their champion.
Anyone can become a menopause champion, and there are a number of ways you can contribute to improving menopause awareness in your workplace. Here are a few things you can do:
