Over the Bloody Moon and Cleaver Fulton Rankin Announce Menopause Matters at Work Conference

Over the Bloody Moon, a global menopause training agency, has partnered with commercial law firm Cleaver Fulton Rankin to deliver the Menopause Matters at Work Conference on 6 September 2024.

The event, hosted at The MAC, Belfast, will bring together 100 NI employers and professionals involved in HR and Diversity, Equality & Inclusion for a day of insights and guidance on how to create a menopause inclusive workplace culture. Attendees will hear from speakers including Over the Bloody Moon’s Client Services Director, Karina Todd, Cleaver Fulton Rankin Associate Director, Florence Smith, NHS GP Dr Marie-Louise Thornton, and Joanne Healy, Head of Group Employee Relations at Bank of Ireland.

The inaugural Menopause Matters at Work conference will cover practical solutions for developing an effective menopause workplace strategy, case studies from clients of Over the Bloody Moon, the legal issues for employers, and information on implementing reasonable adjustments. Delegates will also have the opportunity to see and experience Over the Bloody Moon’s MenoVest™, the world’s first menopause simulator, in action, and will gain exclusive access to the Menopause Matters at Work Toolkit, a vital workplace resource to assist with developing allyship, fostering inclusivity and breaking the taboo around menopause in the workplace.

Karina Todd, Over the Bloody Moon’s Client Services Director for Ireland, comments:

We are excited to announce the launch of NI’s first Menopause Matters at Work conference in Northern Ireland, in partnership with Cleaver Fulton Rankin. This groundbreaking event is dedicated to empowering organisations with the knowledge and tools to support employees experiencing menopause and will bring together industry leaders to discuss the challenges and solutions surrounding managing menopause in the workplace. With a rise in the number of people experiencing menopause at work and a call for more action around effective management of menopause, the need for organisations to provide a more supportive, inclusive and menopause-friendly workplace has never been more important. We are looking forward to championing this important cause by providing valuable insights into how organisations can break the taboo and create a more open and supportive culture for the entire workforce.”

Florence Smith, Associate Director in Cleaver Fulton Rankin’s Employment department, adds:

“We are delighted to be involved in NI’s first Menopause Matters at Work event, in partnership with Over the Bloody Moon. Managing menopause effectively in the workplace is an increasing concern for employers but many are unsure of their legal obligations and what steps they should take to protect employees experiencing menopause and minimise the risk of exposure to claims. Our aim for this conference is to provide further clarity and guidance on the key legal issues and practical solutions that can be adopted by organisations in order to become more progressive, inclusive, and safer workplaces for the benefit of all their employees.”

Tickets for the Menopause Matters at Work conference can be purchased via Eventbrite.
