Celebrating World Menopause Day and Menopause Awareness Month 2023


Get involved in some of the exciting activities we have planned to celebrate World Menopause Day.

We recognise that supporting our colleagues is crucial to the success of the university. We want colleagues to feel safe and accepted; a place where our colleagues feel happy, nurtured and their wellbeing supported. And that means giving you the right support when you need it because many of our colleagues are working through menopause or supporting someone who is either at home or at work.

As you will know, Maureen Montague started the conversation about menopause three years ago. We celebrated World Menopause Day for the first time in 2021 and we have been doing work on this subject ever since.  We are committed to becoming a Menopause Friendly Employer which means breaking the taboo on menopause, to normalise the conversation about menopause in the form of menopause awareness, guidance and support.

We are so pleased that we now have 26 Menopause Champions from across the University that colleagues, and line managers can go to for support.

We are proud of the progress we are making, and we want to keep the conversation going. 18 October is World Menopause Day, and October is Menopause Awareness Month.

The theme this year for World Menopause Day is Cardiovascular Disease.

To help you learn more about heart health during menopause, we have published two new articles by Kathy Abernethy, Founding Clinician and Menopause Specialist at Peppy - on the Menopause Website
