CAKE People Development is delighted to be supporting this event. Menopause is often seen as a taboo subject we believe needs to be brought to the fore and openly discussed by both men and women, unlike in previous generations. We need to prepare women about to enter menopause, support women experiencing symptoms and educate employers. This workshop is a must for both men and women to help them understand more about the subject.
