Podcast: How to support colleagues experiencing menopause

World Menopause Day is marked on 18 October.

To coincide with this year’s annual awareness day, I’m publishing this Candid Comms episode featuring Sue Palfrey, Head of Internal Communication, Community and Engagement at Viridor.

During our candid conversation Sue and I discuss:

  • How to support colleagues experiencing perimenopause or menopause
  • Jargon busting the terminology
  • What role should IC play?
  • What’s the impact on colleagues?
  • Our personal experiences
  • What data shows us.
