New webinar: Closing the Gender Health Gap – Addressing women’s health at work

Group of Women Socialize Teamwork Happiness Concept

This webinar has now taken place and can be viewed here.

Women live longer than men in the UK. But they also spend a greater proportion of their lives dealing with  ‘poor health’ – 23 percent of their lives compared to 20 percent for British men. These are concerns specific to being female, yet still not enough is understood about the complexities and variety of female health conditions.

The government’s Women’s Health Strategy for England aims to right these wrongs and boost health outcomes for women, girls and those who identify as female. With the NHS stretched to the max though, what can employers do to play a proactive role in supporting women’s health in line with the government’s goals?

62% of women say a health condition or disability has impacted their experience in the workplace.

When women, and those who identify as female, are supported to deal with health concerns, your business benefits.
