Welcome to the world’s first Menopause Friendly Employer Awards

On 22 September 2022, we’ll be celebrating the inspirational employers who’ve committed to changing the way we all think and feel about the menopause.

We’ll recognise employers and individuals who are supporting their colleagues every day, helping them be at their best at work and at home.

Celebrating employers making a difference

We’ll be celebrating those who have:

  • Demonstrated they are Menopause Friendly Employers by meeting the Independent Panel’s standards and achieving accreditation.
  • Made the giant step of committing to be menopause friendly.
  • Done something extra special which deserves recognition.

Hosted by 
Louise Minchin

Open to all Menopause Friendly members, the Awards will be held live at Leonardo Royal Hotel, London while also being streamed globally.

Let’s recognise a fantastic year for Menopause Friendly by taking the time to pause, reflect and celebrate our progress together.

Join us for a night to remember…
