Menopause Staff Network

The University recognises the power of Staff Networks, these groups provide an opportunity for staff to connect, socialise, support one another, and discuss issues of relevance to their communities.

Staff Networks are run by and for the members, with administrative support from the ED&I team. We aim for each Staff Network to be led by a Chair, the key intention behind this role being to embed ownership of the Network within the membership and take a lead on the development of the Network.

The Chairs of the Menopause Staff Network are Jane Dashwood and Emma Shield, you can contact them on J dot Dashwood at warwick dot ac dot uk and E dot Shield at warwick dot ac dot uk.

If you are interested in learning more about the Menopause Staff Network and can't find what you need here, contact us and let us know.
