Fertility Awareness & Support Training Workshop

Open to all, we are providing an opportunity to attend our virtual training workshop to educate on the topic of fertility, why it matters in the workplace and how employees can be supported.

Claire, Natalie and Becky at Fertility Matters at Work

This workshop is relevant for People Managers, HR professionals, Mental Health Champions, and internal Fertility Support Advocates as a great opportunity to learn more about this topic and to implement learnings back within their organisation.

Combining statistics and fact with real life stories from the trainers’ own lived experience this session aims to invoke a positive and long-lasting change in how this tricky topic is perceived and understood.

Delivered by HR and Learning Professionals with their own stories of fertility challenges, the training covers:

An introduction to assisted reproduction – the what, the when, and the who

The different types of infertility

The different levels of impact associated with fertility struggles; the physical, mental and emotional

Misconceptions and the unhelpful comments that people may experience in this space

What a typical fertility ‘cycle’ looks like

Why it matters in business

The ‘legalities’ of treatment

How to be a supportive employer

How to manage real life conversations

We create a safe, comfortable space for people to share their own experiences and ask questions with no fear of judgement and, more importantly, to promote meaningful discussions about a subject that has never been discussed this openly in a workplace setting before. We will bring to life real situations that require sensitivity and compassion to navigate and give delegates a glance into the world of reproductive challenges for their employees/colleagues.

“Fertility Matters at Work ran training for our HR Business Partnering team and Mental Health Champions to upskill them in supporting colleagues in the business who are struggling with fertility issues. The sessions were well received, striking a good balance between the practical and emotional aspects of dealing infertility and helping us to consider the impact on colleagues who are having to juggle the demands of their job whilst going through investigations, treatment and potentially loss. Kudos to both of the presenters for facilitating such an informative session and making attendees feel comfortable in discussing what is a very sensitive and emotive topic.”
