The Menopause Project

The Menopause Project is a University initiative focusing on support for those experiencing menopause at work or study. The Menopause Project aims to raise awareness, encourage conversation around the topic without fear of judgement, provide support, retain talent and promote wellbeing.

Our menopause initiatives

Our project is inclusive of everyone who goes through the menopause or menopausal symptoms as a result of hormonal changes. We're supporting our staff and students through:

  • Hosting monthly menopause cafes to offer mutual support and understanding
  • The Menopause Online Network to share information and ideas
  • Menopause advocates to provide help and advice
  • Training sessions for anyone seeking to learn more about how to support their colleagues or others going through menopause
  • Menopause guidance document outlining University's commitment to support staff experiencing symptoms, their colleagues and line managers
  • Toolkits and resources to enhance a better understanding of menopause
  • Events and talks with leading menopause experts and advocates in a range of fields.


We're here to help
