Hundreds of Princes colleagues join live Q&A on the menopause

More than 200 Princes colleagues joined our live Q&A on menopause awareness last week.

Broadcaster and journalist Louise Minchin and menopause expert Dr Helen Kini hosted the event, which was held at our UK Head Office in the Royal Liver Building in Liverpool and was also available virtually to colleagues across the Group.

Joining Louise and Dr Kini on the panel were Princes hosts Louise Rooney, People Director, and Ruth Simpson, Group Director and Gender Diversity Champion.

During the Q&A Louise spoke openly about her experience of the menopause, the work challenges it caused and what works for her to alleviate symptoms.

Dr Helen Kini discussed ways to manage symptoms at work and the resources available on diet, sleep, pelvic health, exercise and mental health for women experiencing peri menopause, menopause and post menopause.

Louise Rooney, People Director for Princes, said: “We were delighted that so many of our colleagues – both male and female – attended this extremely informative and engaging event and that there were lots of questions from the audience.

“We are looking forward to carrying on the conversation and will be working with our colleagues to set up a Menopause Awareness Network. We will also be running support groups across our UK sites, a series of workshops to train our managers and we are reviewing our uniforms.”

Last week, Princes launched its new Menopause Policy for its UK colleagues under the banner of ‘Our Health & Wellbeing’.
