Breakfast by the Bay - Menopause Matters: Igniting Change with Menopause Policy Reform

Menopause affects 50 per cent of the world’s population. Despite this fact, menopause has, until only recently, been cloaked in secrecy; something of a taboo topic; and, a social stigma endured by women.
 
The cloak of secrecy has begun to slowly lift in recent years with media articles, and podcasts shining a light on all things menopause. Crucially, politicians and policymakers are beginning to wake up to the importance of the need to develop policy to ensure that women experiencing menopause can continue to play an equal and active role in the workplace, political and civic life, and, within their families and communities.
 
The policy significance of menopause is reflected by the fact that the Australia Senate’s Community Affairs References Committee are currently conducting an inquiry into menopause and peri-menopause issues.
 
Join the UWA Public Policy Institute for its next Breakfast by the Bay event – Menopause Matters: Igniting Change with Menopause Policy Reform – with an exciting panel of experts with lived experience, research insights and policy practice in dealing with menopause and the benefits of menopause-friendly policies, especially in the workplace.
 
Includes a delicious two-course breakfast  and panel discussion.
