Menopause Policy highlighted on BBC Sunday Politics

Menopause research that helped to shape a government report, and led to Leicester becoming the first UK University with a menopause policy, will be the subject of discussion during an upcoming episode of BBC Sunday Politics East Midlands.

Dr Andrea Davies, Associate Professor in marketing and consumption in the School of Business, is the academic lead for the Menopause Policy initiative and co-author of the 2017 Department of Education global evidence report on menopause transition and economic participation.

Dr Davies was interviewed, along with research and HR colleagues, about her research and the impact this has had both at the University and further afield.

Dr Davies continues to work with Dr Vanessa Beck (University of Bristol) and Professor Jo Brewis (The Open University) former University of Leicester colleagues and fellow co-authors on the government report to extend their recommendations made in their report into workplaces, including a large scale survey on Menopause at Work with TUC education this summer.
