Valuing Women: Working Through the Menopause
Working Through the Menopause guidance is built upon responses from over 3000 NUT women members about their experiences of working through the menopause in school. It answers some of the key questions raised by the women taking part.
A workplace checklist featuring ways in which all schools and colleges should be addressing issues around the menopause is included in the guide, please copy it and use it to create opportunities amongst all staff for discussion on this important workplace issue.
This is not just a women’s issue – it is an issue about which a collective response to finding solutions in all workplaces is needed.
