‘’Employees who believe that management is concerned about them as a whole person – not just an employee – are more productive, more satisfied, more fulfilled.” Anne M. Mulcahy


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

It is divided into two separate but related days.

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.
