Menopause - Breaking the Taboo

Hi everyone, a slight change of schedule this week as we bring to you something a little different to our usual format. Last week I chaired a panel discussion with the ISC Group, focused upon 'Understanding the Menopause' along with Sian Fisher, CEO at the Chartered Institute of InsuranceHelen Dick, Senior Manager Underwriting & Claims Strategy at Scottish Widows and Christine Husbands, Managing Director at Red Arc.

This podcast, recorded from the live panel discussion which was broadcast Thursday 15th April, explores how the menopause impacts a woman's work life, and how employers can ensure they are providing the necessary support. The panel also touched on how we can work to break the taboos surrounding menopause, and in doing so, support colleagues and clients better.

The ISC Group is a business community that provides personal, professional and business development for women in insurance. Initially launched as a network for senior women in the UK, it's quickly developed into a global business community uniting women across the world.
