Menopause is a growing concern in the workplace. More than 50% of the population will experience menopause. Therefore, it makes sense to create workplace culture and environments that support employees at all stages of their lives and careers. Retention and excelling is key to
a healthy and productive workplace.
Period & Pause deliver friendly and professional menstrual health and menopause awareness workshops and training to staff and managers that help your company continue to grow and excel. We provide a safe space led by independent facilitators to share experiences, gain knowledge and challenge misconceptions about periods and the menopause.
We believe everybody deserves to thrive, enjoy doing their best work and feel comfortable in their workplace.
"Period & Pause provided a really informative session. I thought I was pretty well informed but I learned so much. It's so important that these issues are talked about in these sorts of open forums."

"At TechSwitch, we are committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive environment within the tech industry. Our partnership with Period & Pause demonstrates our commitment to addressing the often-overlooked challenges of menopause in the workplace. Many of our TechSwitchers are women returners and the expertise that Period & Pause bring to the table helps us to better support them, both during the bootcamp and during their placements with our hiring partners. By acknowledging and raising awareness about menopause, together we want to create an empowered workforce where everyone’s experiences are valued and respected”

Why Period & Pause?
2 in 10 women experience a menstrual health disorder such as endometriosis, polycystic ovaries syndrome, adenomyosis and fibroids. More than 50% of women experience debilitating peri-menopause, menopause & post-menopausal symptoms.
We want to help you retain valuable staff and embed an inclusive, friendly workplace culture.
Evidence shows that many women are reducing their hours or leaving work altogether due to their perimenopausal and menopausal symptoms. Our menstrual and menopause awareness training helps break taboos and create transparent, healthy work environments where everybody can thrive.
