In our December HR club, we are discussing women’s health. We will be looking at the breadth of this topic – from menstrual health, gynaecological conditions, pregnancy and fertility treatments to menopause, mental wellbeing and domestic abuse. We’ll consider why it is important for businesses to focus on supporting women’s health and finish with practical steps that employers can take to raise awareness, break the taboo and stigma associated with women’s health issues and effect real change.
We’ll be joined in the session by our expert colleagues at VWV, who will be explaining the relevance of legal frameworks, how women’s health issues interact with the current Equality Act framework and areas of focus in the Women’s Health Strategy for England. They will also be outlining how employers can mitigate risk.
This will be a really good session for HR professionals and business leaders who are looking to review existing workplace practices or to implement new strategies.
