Leading menopause experts form partnership with Women in Data® for game changing initiative: MenopauseX
This ground-breaking collaboration will provide cutting edge data insights and bridge data gaps that exist here in the UK, and beyond.
Cross collaboration will generate previously non-existent/scarce insights, demonstrate the cost of the menopause to the economy and, in turn, improve the health and wellbeing of menopausal women and trans/non-binary people everywhere.
The collective of subject matter experts includes:
Women in Data, a highly skilled community that supports and develops the careers of women in data and technology.
The balance menopause app, founded by leading doctor and menopause specialist Dr Louise Newson. The award-winning menopause support app has the ambition to make menopause support inclusive and accessible to all. The app has already empowered hundreds of thousands of women worldwide to share their insights and experience, track their symptoms, and access expert help, diagnosis and treatment.
Newson Health Research and Education, a not-for-profit centre of excellence dedicated to the perimenopause and menopause, that provides healthcare professionals, education and knowledge about treatment options for the menopause including the safe prescribing of HRT.
Entering positions of leadership at a time of change
Our research has shown that women are often stepping into roles with greater responsibility and influence during this time in their working life. This career-crucial time can often be impacted by the menopause and we know that it is affecting women’s workplace confidence to achieve, wellbeing and ability to climb the career ladder.
Inclusivity is key to a complete meaningful data and compelling results
Our MenopauseX insights will be used to improve the health and wellbeing of women the world over. To gain truly valuable intelligence, our project design, resources, contributions, data and interpretation will be inclusive and reflective of society.
The project’s commitment to inclusion will be met by addressing gaps in menopause data, for example women from minority backgrounds and non-binary people. Our collective strategy is designed to support identities that have previously been omitted from research studies, who are often more adversely affected earlier in life and with greater health implications.
