Walkers and Kleinwort Hambros are bringing Carolyn Harris MP, Labour MP for Swansea East and co-chairwoman of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Menopause, to an event at which she will talk about why she is so passionate about menopause and improving education around it.
She led a successful campaign which persuaded the UK government to confirm that changes will be made to reduce the cost of hormone replacement therapy prescriptions and to establish a new menopause taskforce.
The taskforce will consider the role that education, training, workplace policies and peer groups can play in supporting individuals through what can be a mentally and physically challenging time.
She will be joined by Walkers group partner Sarah Ash and senior counsel Daniel Read, Vitality40Plus founder Trudi Roscouet, Helen Myers, head of Focus HR in Jersey, and Kleinwort Hambros chief executive officer Phil McIlwraith, for a panel discussion on the impact that the menopause can have in the workplace and how businesses can support their staff.
‘By talking about a once taboo subject, menopause, we are raising awareness and better educating ourselves as employers to provide a greater understanding on the effects of menopause,’ said Mr McIlwraith.
