Our second workshop - Blood Work: Menstruation, Rights and Employment - will focus on issues of menstruation and work.
Confirmed speakers so far include Professor Jo Duberley and Professor Jo Brewis.
Prof. Joanne Duberley, University of Birmingham will give a keynote presentation:
'The menopause taboo and work: The impact of menopause on the working lives of women in the police force'.
Our second keynote speaker, Prof. Joanna Brewis will present her paper ‘Menopause and the workplace: new directions in research’.
Prof. Duberley is Deputy Pro-Vice Chancellor (Equality) and Professor of Organisation Studies at the University of Birmingham. Over the last twenty years she has developed research examining the impact of gender, ethnicity, social class and age on careers in a variety of contexts including defence, professional service organisations and the police in the UK. She co-directs the Work Inclusivity Research Centre at Birmingham with Dr Holly Birkett.
Prof. Jo Brewis works at The Open University Business School, where she is Head of the Department for People and Organizations. Her research interests include the intersections between gender, bodies and organizations, which for the last few years has meant her focusing on menopause in the workplace context. She also has an abiding interest in academic practices in management and organization studies, such as research ethics and peer review.
