Notice of Motion from Council 14 July 2022: Menopause Workplace Pledge

A discussion to be held on the views of the Panel:



iv) Councillor S Squire proposed the following Notice of Motion (7/22), seconded by Councillor Rust.


“Menopause Workplace Pledge”


 It is estimated there are some 13 million women in the UK that are currently peri or menopausal. Menopausal women are the fastest growing demographic in the workforce and almost 8 out of 10 menopausal women are in work. This council is aware that over 50% of our workforce and 25% of our councillors are women. It recognises that peri-menopause and menopause and the wide ranging symptoms involved can be a difficult time for women, can lead to a loss of confidence which may then lead to women leaving the workforce. This council would like to demonstrate they are fully supportive of both staff and councillors experiencing menopause and wish to be a Menopause Friendly Employer. Therefore, we agree to sign the Menopause Workplace Pledge, nominate a dedicated Menopause Champion amongst the staff and to arrange regular support and advice sessions that can be accessed by both staff and councillors. Councillors Squire and Rust spoke in support of the Motion. Under standing order 14.6 Councillor Dark proposed that the Motion be referred to the Corporate Performance Panel for consideration. Council debated referring the matter to the Panel. On being put to the vote the proposal was agreed.


RESOLVED: That the Motion be referred to the Corporate Performance Panel for consideration
