Understanding (Peri) Menopause in the Workplace

– 1 HR PRESENTATION AND Q&A  (Face to Face or via Zoom)

Packed full of information, designed for anyone directly and indirectly impacted by peri-menopause (and that’s everyone!), with a focus on the work environment. This presentation/discussion/Q&A is facilitated by Nest’s CEO; Nurse Specialist,  Published Author, and sought after Speaker, Robyn Fausett. She brings her wealth of knowledge, humour, experience and expertise to deliver essential & empowering information for staff and management.
By the end of the session you will know the key points of what peri-menopause is, including the wide variety of its effects, some practical tips & tricks to ensure the workspace is ‘menopause friendly’ all with the goal to ensure your team are supported working through this transient life stage.

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.
Let’s do something about that!

We will also leave behind further resources including assistance in formulating workplace policy and, for anyone interested in a deeper dive, we offer our ‘The M Word’ 2.5 hrs workshop.

The presenter is a qualified women’s health & fertility nurse specialist with a current practicing certificate, a member of the ‘Menopause Collective Aotearoa, NZ’ who recently met with Parliamentary members to discuss menopause reforms, a published author, a member of the Australasian Menopause Society (AMS – International Associate), the International Menopause Society (IMS), Menopause Experts International and is also accredited by Natural Fertility NZ (NFNZ) providing CME & professional development to GP’s. She regularly attends Conferences & Workshops to ensure the latest accurate information is at hand.

“It really was great. Culturally sensitive and inclusive. Very insightful. Breaking down the information to be easily understood, on a topic not typically spoken about; I thought it was at just the right level – also appropriate for males without anyone needing to feel uncomfortable. Also very carefully and thoughtfully managed, recording the session, but taking Q&A after recording stopped with Lisa/Robyn curating the questions from the chat – nicely done. I think this approach was a very comfortable one. A really important session with an engaging presenter, thank you. Highly recommended”Sanitarium Health Food Company Australasia (Better U programme)
