Menopause Xplored brings innovative training using immersive film to SMEs (small and medium enterprises) in Milton Keynes, Bedford, Central Beds and Luton.

A programme from leading women’s health charity, Wellbeing of Women, Menopause Xplored is part of our mission to improve the health and wellbeing of women.

Who can attend

We welcome business owners, managers and employees from SMEs in the region, with up to 250 employees who are looking for practical help to ensure a more supportive, diverse and prosperous workplace.

Up to two free places per business are available.

Immersive VR film

We will begin with an immersive film, viewed through a virtual reality headset. The film shows one woman’s experience of menopause and the challenges she faced in the workplace.

Group discussion

We will then discuss the film and share our insights. This is a chance to reflect, and to consider particular situations or issues in our own workplaces.

Advice and guidance

Expert trainer Diane Danzebrink from Menopause Support will provide information and practical tips, to help you and your organisation offer the right kind of support.


You will receive an information pack to take away with you on the day and access to further online resources.

We are working with Menopause Reality, a multi-film immersive project from Forward Slash Films, sharing individual stories of women's experiences of the menopause in the workplace, viewed in VR headsets. Workshops will be delivered by leading menopause expert Diane Danzebrink from Menopause Support.

Menopause Xplored has been developed by Wellbeing of Women and is funded through the VCSE Health and Wellbeing Fund. This is part of a partnership programme between the Department of Health and Social Care, NHS England and the UK Health Security Agency.
