Menopause-Aware Workplaces with CIPD & The LEGO Group

Considering that menopause is a stage of life that half the global population will experience, it is a staggeringly under-addressed part of employee wellbeing. How can we contribute to deepen organizational and societal understanding of this stage in life? Recognizing the existence of menopause in the workplace is about growing organizational cultures that include all phases of human life.

This online event aimed to start conversations and challenge silence and stigma surrounding menopause. We wish to invite for discussions about visions for menopause-aware organizations, and how working with organizational awareness can boost essential deep-experience-level employee satisfaction and retention. We wish to acknowledge and bring societal attention to the unnecessarily large amount of extra energy spent on navigating this phase alone. We wish to grow organizations that make it easier to contribute to the world.

Our esteemed speakers from The LEGO Group and CIPD (UK’s Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development) – specialized experts in their fields in Denmark and internationally – will share valuable insights and practical approaches to start growing supportive cultures for all employees. They will address how organizational menopause-awareness work is about long-term, sustainably inclusive cultures, employee satisfaction and retention.

By embracing this topic, we can create workplaces that are not only more inclusive, and in that way, more resilient and adaptable. This event is an opportunity for HR and people professionals to learn, engage, and be at the forefront of this important conversation towards our workplaces actually including everyone.

If there was something you could learn or do to make it easier for someone else – or for yourself – to contribute to the world, you would very likely want to. This event was a significant step forward in our community’s journey towards more empathetic and inclusive workplaces. Watch the video from this engaging and enlightening conversation, and be part of the transition.
