Introduction

This survey aims to gather information on workplace cultures and attitudes towards menopause within the archaeology and heritage sector.

We are interested in the opinions of all those working in our archaeological community, not only those who are currently, or who have in the past experieinced menopause.  When discussing menopause we are including those with early onset menopause and members of the trans and non-binary community who may also experience menopause symptoms.

Why ask about menopause? We are asking because in the UK the number of women in the workforce has been steadily increasing over the last 30 years. This means a large proportion of the UK workforce may experience menopause transition during their working lives. 

Symptoms can be both physical (headaches, hot flushes, eratic periods, poor sleep) and/or psychological (anxiety, poor concentration, low mood).

Menopause is a life stage experienced differently by different people. Often it is a difficult and stressful time, a sensitive matter that is personal and not always easy to openly discuss.  It is important that employers recognise the potential impact of menopause and the steps they can take to support their employees. 

This  survey should take less than 5 minutes to complete. Your responses will be confidential as we do not collect identifying information such as your name, email address or IP address. The results of this survey will be held by BAJR Respect and the results published in a summary report and used to help inform the work of the Respect Campaign.
