Empowering us all: a conference on the importance of wellbeing in the workplace

This online conference is for anyone who is interested in exploring the importance of wellbeing in the workplace.

The conference will be separated into two different but related days, as follows:

Day 1: Fostering Wellbeing for a Thriving Workplace
Day 2: Navigating the Menopause Journey

On each day delegates will have an opportunity to share best practice and exchange viewpoints on various approaches. They will also be able to reflect on the challenges and possible solutions to address wellbeing deficits in today’s workplace.

It is anticipated that this conference will facilitate networking opportunities and future initiatives for professionals, organisations and advocates interested in advancing wellbeing and menopause inclusivity in the workplace.

Call for participation

We invite researchers, scholars, healthcare professionals, activists, and individuals with personal experiences and examples of good practice related to the nurturing of wellbeing in the workplace (day 1) or the management of the challenges of menopause (day 2) to submit abstracts for presentation at the conference.

We welcome workshops as examples of good practice as well as academic papers. Submissions are encouraged in, but not limited to, the following areas:

  • Medical Perspectives: Research on physiological aspects of wellbeing at work and/or menopause, hormonal changes, and medical interventions.
  • Psychological and Emotional Wellbeing: Studies on psychological and emotional impacts on wellbeing and/or menopause at work, coping mechanisms, and mental health support.

  • Inclusive Healthcare: Strategies for creating inclusive healthcare environments that address the diverse wellbeing needs of individuals in general and/or individuals going through the menopause.
  • Intersectionality: Intersectional analyses of wellbeing in the workplace and/or menopause, considering factors such as race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status.
  • Community Support and Activism: Initiatives, programs, and activism aimed at challenging stereotypes and supporting the wellbeing of individuals in the workplace, including, possibly, during the menopausal journey.
