LSBU Menopause Monthly Café – Come along to chat, share or simply listen!

11 September, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Welcome to LSBU Menopause Monthly Café! – an informal, respectful and safe space to talk about the menopause

All LSBU Group Staff are welcomed to the LSBU Menopause Monthly Café!

The aim is to create a space where colleagues can come together – sometimes virtually, sometimes physically – once a month to share their personal experiences, exchange useful information, tips & signposting or simply listen & learn more about the menopause. We hope to normalise conversations around the menopause to create a happier, more understanding & aware workplace for all.

Throughout the previous year, we have seen training sessions for staff and line managers, menopause cafes events, adopting menopause policies and flexible working to offer more support to our staff.


Becoming a menopause friendly workplace

We’ve teamed up with Henpicked: Menopause in the Workplace to ensure that LSBU is a menopause friendly workplace we aim to become officially accredited as such in the near future!

In the meantime, here’s what you can expect to see in the coming year…

  • A menopause dedicated intranet page packed full of information, resources & signposting (check our wellbeing hub)
  • Access to Menopause in the Workplace workshops
  • Activities such as the Café and special guest speakers events
  • Menopause training for Mental Health & Dignity at Work Champions
  • LSBU staff-led menopause information sessions


This is something we can all be part of

Everyone is welcome to come along to the Café or to get involved in any of the above: whether you, or a loved one is going, through the menopause and need a bit of support; if you’re peri-menopausal & want to know more; if you’re post-menopausal & want to share your experiences; or if you simply want to be able to better support a colleague who is experiencing the menopause.

We’ll be asking what topics you’d like to hear covered when you register. If you have any ideas for activities or events, please get in touch with Daniela Pantica or Antony Shaw by emailing events@lsbu.ac.uk and we’ll happy to have a chat!
