Women’s Health at Work-image

Women make up nearly half of the UK workforce, but many feel forced to reduce their hours at work, pass up promotions and even quit their jobs due to lack of support.

When organisations support women’s health, they enable women to thrive at work, which benefits businesses, the economy, and wider society.

In this webinar, we will explore how women can advocate for themselves at work if they are not currently receiving support, how organisations can build a culture of support and the impact it can have on their workforce.

Our Chair, Professor Dame Lesley, will host this open conversation. She will be joined by Dr Krystal Wilkinson, an Associate Professor in Human Resource Management, based at the Business School’s Centre for Decent Work and Productivity at Manchester Metropolitan University. Her research focuses on the work-life interface, women’s health and wellbeing at work. Dr Krystal Wilkinson will also share her positive experience of the support her workplace gave her, when she suffered from severe perinatal mental illness after the birth of her son.

They will be joined by Amy McKeown, an award-winning Mental Health, Health & Wellbeing and Women’s Health consultant with more than 20 years of unparalleled experience.

Our guest speaker is Laura Chin-See, who was forced to leave a job she loved because of her menstrual health. Now, Laura is speaking out, because she believes workplaces should be more open and respectful of women’s health.
