An announcement from Fertility Matters at Work

by

We’re thrilled to share an announcement relating to our co-founder at Fertility Matters at Work, Becky Kearns, who will be taking up the exciting role of CEO for Fertility Network UK, the national fertility charity. She will begin transitioning over to the role throughout February and March, whilst remaining involved with Fertility Matters at Work.

Becky has existing relationships with the charity through her parliamentary work with the fertility workplace pledge and in collaborating to create the APPG (All Parliamentary Party Group) on Fertility. She will be leading the charity’s efforts to forge new longer term partnerships with a wide range of people who align with the charity’s vision, goals and values. Fertility Matters at Work will be exploring the idea of forming a more formal way of working collaboratively with Fertility Network UK, and will be discussing this over the coming months with the trustees of Fertility Network UK which, as a charity will be considering how a partnership might allow the charity to achieve much more impact.

As a community interest company (a social enterprise with many similarities to a charity) we share the same mission to provide better support for those experiencing fertility challenges, and so this move is an exciting development for us as co-founders as we work to make the workplace a fertility friendly place for all.

Becky said; “Fertility struggles are often a hugely misunderstood and unsupported life-event, with far-reaching impact for individuals who are affected. Fertility Network UK plays a key role acting as a voice for those people and providing much needed support, with a platform to campaign for significant change at a policy level.”
