Sex and Gender in the Workplace

Menopause and me

With reasonable adjustments being a term often associated with disability and religion or belief, we can also focus on how to improve the experience of menopausal women in the workplace.

Buy the Mango: self-care for the freelancer

Self-care, what does this actually mean? A quick search on Google generates over 22 million results for self-care. Essentially it is any activity that can improve your mental health, it is personal to you and doesn’t need to cost a thing.

Virtual Leadership: how to manage a remote team effectively

Working remotely means having to adjust how we work both independently and as a team. Working from home made me realise how much interaction and regular communication I had with my colleagues during the typical working day, which I think we take for granted. So, when work suddenly becomes remote and we not surrounded by our colleagues, we must adjust.

Through understanding and examination, we can start to develop behaviours that encourage equality and support growth.
