Workplace support for women experiencing menopause symptoms.

Menopause is not a new issue but one that can silently affect women in the workplace. Stigma remains and it can be a difficult topic to discuss with colleagues and managers.

But things are changing.

The Cross-Government Menopause Network has been set up to break the menopause taboo in the Civil Service.

And the Civil Service has signed the Menopause Workplace Pledge.
