About menopause friendly accreditation

Who we are

Our aim is for every employer to be menopause friendly.

Our Independent Panel and supporting expert team from Henpicked: Menopause in the Workplace are passionate about helping every organisation introduce the right menopause awareness, education and support. We are trainers, leaders, comms experts and healthcare and other industry professionals, bringing together our collective know-how to educate and guide organisations towards receiving the Menopause Friendly accreditation.

Together, we have a vast pool of knowledge and years of experience relating to all things menopause at work, supporting the pioneering employers who’ve already made a positive difference to their colleagues.

Whether you’re starting from scratch, already begun but don’t know where to go next or deserve recognition for the amazing work you’ve already done, we’re with you all the way.

We want:

  • To change mindsets and attitudes towards menopause. Making it as easy to talk about as the weather.
  • Everyone to understand what menopause is and be able to talk about it openly. This isn’t just an issue for women, everyone needs to know so they can support colleagues, friends and family.
  • Those experiencing menopause symptoms to feel confident to discuss it and ask for support if they need it to continue being happy and successful at work.
  • Managers to understand menopause, to confidently have good conversations, and know how to help.

Ultimately, we believe all organisations should take menopause in the workplace seriously. It’s good for colleagues and good for the organisation.
