Menopause is Not Women’s Business, It’s All Our Business

What is Meno Collective?

Meno Collective partners with workplaces to provide menopause education and resources so companies can reap the cultural and financial rewards of being a truly inclusive workplace. They call that being menopause friendly. It makes total business sense.

Meno Collective love helping businesses become menopause friendly, so they are “compliant” and supportive for female employees. That way women and workplaces thrive together.

Meno Collective explores the social, financial, and ethical implications of menopause at work to turn these into an opportunity for the whole workforce.

The Current Landscape

Over 90% of menopausal women find work is negatively impacted by symptoms of menopause. Menopause typically occurs when women are stepping into leadership roles. Women are underrepresented in most industries. Over 80% of women fear disclosing menopause status at work or asking for support. Less than 5% of workplaces provide menopause support.

Women take sick leave and quit jobs due to symptoms of menopause. Workplaces loose talent and knowledge incurring financial and legal risk. Workplace menopause-related discrimination is on the rise and needs to be addressed.

Women are being sold menopause products constantly. Education and knowledge are empowering. Menopause is one of the remaining workplace taboos. The irony being that half of the workforce will experience menopause. All women are affected by it in some way. Menopause impacts everyone. Menopause is an emerging segment in the workplace wellness industry.

The United Kingdom are leading the way in making the workplace environment more menopause supportive to retain talent and avoid menopause-related discrimination. In Australia and New Zealand, the conversation about menopause at work is just beginning.
