Wellbeing of Women held a roundtable event to launch the pledge where Alex Perry, CEO for Bupa UK Insurance, spoke about the importance of supporting women’s health in the workplace. The event was attended by HRH the Countess of Wessex, Gabby Logan and Carolyn Harris MP amongst others.

Tom Webber, People Director for Bupa Global, India & UK said: “We’re always looking for new ways to support our people. By committing to the ‘Menopause in the Workplace’ pledge, we aim to create an environment where we can speak openly and provide support around this important topic.

“We want our people to thrive at work and it’s important that businesses have the right support in place for when people might be struggling. We want everyone to be comfortable speaking about what they’re experiencing and accessing the support they need.”
