Aย free webinar from IP Inclusive and Jonathan’s Voice
to mark World Menopause Day

Tuesday 17 October 2023
12.30 โ€“ 1.30 pm

 

For far too long the menopause – a natural process that a sizeable proportion of the human race goes through – has been shrouded in secrecy, shame and ignorance. This has led to untold misery for countless numbers of people as they have tried to navigate their lonely way through it. Now, at long last, we are starting to take the menopause seriously, raising awareness of the impact it can have both at home and at work and understanding how much difference the right kind of support and treatment can make.

In this webinar, we learnt more about the menopause and perimenopause, heard from a panel of IP professionals about their personal experiences and suggestions, and had the chance to share our own thoughts and experiences in small breakout groups.

World Menopause Day is on 18 October each year, so what better time to “shine a light” on this important topic? Attendeesย  joined IP Inclusive and Jonathan’s Voice for a webinar that we’re sure would have been an eye-opener, not to mention a source of reassurance, for all IP professionals.

 

Who was it for?

This event was for all UK-based IP professionals. Everyone was welcome and everyone stood to benefit, regardless of age, gender or professional role.
