Managing Menopause as a Working Woman
“One of the biggest side effects I had was brain fog. I'd be in meetings, and nothing would go in. These people are just talking at me, and I don't know what to say in response – and that is a real knock of confidence."

This is one of the common symptoms of menopause. For Lesley Fettes, director of Network Design, going through it ended up being a blessing in disguise.

But when it came to going back to work, things got a bit tricky. Working in a small agency at the time, there was no support.

“I had to put strategies in place myself to be able to work. It was a case of needing to take ownership of what was going on and how I could manage that myself.”

So, what can we do to support those going through menopause? Lesley will be talking us through:

• How she navigated menopause as a working woman.
• What processes bigger agencies need to have in place.
• How male colleagues can help.
• Menopause myths and the realities of menopause.
