Supporting Women in the Workplace Programme

Supporting Women in the Workplace Programme

Over the past few years, organisations have come a long way in recognising the importance of supporting diversity and inclusion in the workplace.  With 16.06 million women aged over 16 in employment and c. 37% of directorships occupied by women. 

As organisations become more gender diverse, acknowledging and supporting women’s health in the workplace has become increasingly more important.  Promoting an inclusive working environment for all genders and ages is paramount for every organisation and can help women employees better manage their workload and reduce stress, leading to improved mental and physical health. 

Women’s health and wellbeing is a growing focus for many organisations as they consider how to attract and retain female talent in the workplace. This programme is an opportunity for business leaders and managers to educate themselves and their teams on women’s health and any issues associated with it.  Those signs and symptoms that may affect working life, from events such as periods, menstrual cycles, conditions associated with periods, pregnancy, fertility struggles or menopause which may impact their performance at work.  Knowing how to support is essential in keeping women in the workplace. 

This programme not only informs and educates on women’s health events, it considers how managers can normalise and encourage conversations around women’s health at work, how the policies you have in place support the changing needs of women. 

After all gender diverse businesses are more likely to financially outperform their counterparts.
