Our July 2023 members roundtable event

“Our first panel event on IWD, hosted by Fertility Matters at Work alongside our People Director, was a fantastic event where all of the panel shared their different fertility journeys and for some their lived experience of loss. Since the event we have received many messages from people across the organisation who have said for the first time they feel able to share what their journey has been or what they are about to embark on. So many people grateful to know there is a policy to guide their line manager and support available to them when they need it. This is another important step towards achieving our aim to cultivate a diverse community where everyone can be their authentic self and achieve balance through wellbeing.”

Head of Employee Relations, Policy and Wellbeing, Selfridges

“A quick note to thank you for the excellent workshop on Tuesday!  It was the best workshop we have had by a long way; it found a great balance between information/facts and personal anecdote.  The hosts were outstanding – professional and great communicators – and the panel with Shaun was high impact.  I took a lot from the session and feel well equipped as a leader on this topic.”


“The webinar today was absolutely fantastic. As a Store Manager it’s important to me that we create a space for colleagues where we open up the conversation around fertility treatment and pregnancy loss. By sharing their personal stories, Natalie and Becky together with our colleagues have really helped me to understand the challenging journey to parenthood and how we can all be more supportive.”


From our own personal experiences of fertility treatment whilst in the workplace, the great work that Becky, Claire and Natalie do at Fertility Matters at Work resonated so much that we were delighted to have them support our events for National Fertility Awareness Week 2021.  From sharing their own personal experiences and the research they’ve conducted, they really helped bring to life the work we’re already doing across Virgin Media O2 about infertility and fertility treatment, to raise awareness, understanding and support for people going through fertility challenges whilst in the workplace.”

“We believe that everyone has the right to start a family and we know the stress, hurt and financial impact that fertility issues can bring. When one of our employees told us about Fertility Matters at work, I signed up to one of their webinars and was blown away by the passion, care and energy the team were putting into raising awareness of supporting employees with fertility matters. We knew that Fertility Matters at Work would be an ideal organisation to help guide us on our journey. Since then we’re proud to be one of the first organisations in the UK to be working with the team to become ‘Fertility Friendly’. Whatever their path to starting a family, we want to know we have done all we can to support our employees and I know that working with Fertility Matters at Work will give us the reassurance that we are doing that.”

“Thank you to Natalie and Becky at Fertility Matters at Work. During the webinar today, you covered a difficult topic sensitively and professionally. You created a safe space for colleagues to share their powerful and inspiring stories and we’ve learnt how we can be more understanding and supporting of our colleagues who are experiencing infertility and pregnancy loss.”


“Family planning is such a significant life experience and it can be a very exciting time. At the same time, infertility and pregnancy loss is a reality that many people are continuing to face, alongside legal and parental eligibility challenges, that can make the journey to parenthood a heart-breaking process. At Criteo we recognise that this is an important life experience and we aim to create a work environment of support and understanding, demonstrating our commitment to our employees’ well-being, and giving them the best opportunities to pursue their dreams of starting or expanding their families. Fertility Matters at Work’s mission was in total adequation with our commitments. They bring passion to raise awareness and educate on how fertility issues can have a direct impact on both organizations and their employees and offer great support resources available for all Criteos (e-learning, training, panel discussions etc.).”

“It is vital that the physical and mental strain fertility puts on individuals is recognised in the workplace because that strain doesn’t stop the moment someone opens up their laptop or walks through the office door. Our DE&I strategy looks to support our people, whoever they are, whatever they are going through and wherever they are in their journey through life. As part of that we need to ensure that people don’t feel that their only option is to step out of the workplace when it comes to starting a family. Parenthood is not easy on anyone, it’s even more difficult when challenges arise on the path to get there. We are so pleased to be partnering with Fertility Matters at Work on our journey and it’s important to us that we really show Iris as fertility friendly when we educate, raise awareness and offer more support for those on a more difficult path to parenthood.”

– Harriet Shurville
Global Chief People Officer, Iris

“I highly recommend the team at Fertility at Work for all their fertility education and awareness sessions. The team of experts delivered informative and engaging sessions that greatly improved the knowledge of all things fertility to our whole organisation. The materials are well-organized and easy to understand. The co-founders were highly experienced, provided valuable insights and truly opened up the conversation within the workplace. I truly feel that the Fertility at work team have transformed the landscape at work and we are so grateful for the opportunity to learn from such a great team.”

– Sheena Amin-Liebman
Director of Diversity & Inclusion, Fishawack Health

“Partnering with Fertility Matters at Work has given us confidence to take the steps towards becoming an inclusive employer for those dealing with infertility. It is a sensitive topic, and not something widely talked about at work, and we have benefitted from guidance around the actions we should take and how to position them. Our new policy and launch event, both of which IMAW supported with, have both landed really well in the business and we are looking forward to further collaboration.”
