Did you know that a staggering 900,000 women have quit their jobs here in the UK because of a lack of menopause support? We’re talking about talented, brilliant women (many at the pinnacle of their careers) who are jacking in their jobs (as well as their hard work) because it feels like their only option.
Not only is this devastating for these individual women, it exacerbates the pension and gender pay gap and weakens gender diversity (not to mention the small matter of the impact on the economy).
So join us on TUESDAY, APRIL 4TH AT 7.30pm for a FREE Rest Less Presents and My Menopause Centre online event when our expert panel will be discussing what needs to change.
We’ll hear from My Menopause Centre’s menopause specialist, Dr Abbie Laing, Deborah Garlick, CEO of Menopause in the Workplace, and Madhu Kapoor, founder of M for Menopause.
From how to have the conversation with your boss to practical strategies for dealing with symptoms at work, we’ll leave no menopausal stone unturned.

Preparing for the Event
For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).
We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
What if I can’t make the event?
If a recording’s available for the event, you can still register for it and we will send you an email with a link to a recording shortly after it ends.
Will my camera be on and will I be visible to the other people?
Your camera and microphone does not need to be on for you to enjoy the event. The choice about whether to do this is completely yours.
How do I watch the live event?
Rest Less events are hosted on Zoom, a computer application that allows you to attend online events just by clicking a link. For detailed instructions, please go to our "FAQ" page, which you can find a link to in the nav bar at the top of the page.
How do I sign-up for and access the recording? (Recorded events only)
Book the event as normal (as if you are attending live). After the event ends you will automatically receive a post-event email with a link to the recording, as long as the event was recorded. You do not need to do anything else and there is no separate booking process for recordings only. Please note it can take up to 24 hours for Zoom to process recordings.
