At Nest, we have an understanding of Aotearoa’s diverse workforce, ethnic communities and the systemic and intergenerational barriers many people are still facing today. We know there is still mahi to do when it comes to gender equity. We believe in an Aotearoa where all people can be their authentic selves.

Nest works closely with a DE&I specialist to ensure you receive information, resources and support specific to your workplace.

(Peri) Menopause at Work

We need to be more informed about menopause in the workplace. Recently released results from the Menodoctor Survey New Zealand 2023 (4,200+ people across Aotearoa) highlights that menopause doesn’t stay at home when someone goes to work. 84% of respondents said menopause symptoms impacted their work. Only 14% said they felt well supported at work, 1 in 6 said they thought about quitting and 12% did quit.

Addressing menstruation support in the workplace is key in progressing your gender equity goals. A recent CIPD survey of over 2000 women aged 18-60 informs that of the 4 in 5 women who reported symptoms from menstruation, over two thirds have experienced a negative impact at work.
