World’s first menopause awards launched

GenM, set up by co-founders Heather Jackson and Sam Simister, to help companies improve the menopause experience and normalise the conversation around it, has announced the launch of the world’s first menopause awards. 

To encourage progress and celebrate success, the 2022 GenM awards, will shine a light on the organisations improving the menopause for the 15.5 million plus women in the UK, in the workplace, at home and in society.

Heather Jackson, Co-Founder, GenM says: “As we continue to assist our partners in navigating the challenging conversation surrounding menopause, we remain committed to providing opportunities for brands and businesses to learn from each other, and implement best practice through sharing and celebrating their achievements.

“This covers all areas of business from workplace policies to marketing, merchandise to campaigns, and product development to signposting.”

Co-Founder, GenM Sam Simister, adds: “At GenM, we know that away from the media spotlight, there are untold numbers of people, brands and businesses who are working tirelessly to normalise the conversation and improve the menopause experience for everyone. That’s why it’s so important that we come together in 2022 to celebrate the success brands, businesses and individuals that have had in improving the menopause in the workplace, at home and in society.” 

The awards will open for entries in April 2022, and will be judged by a panel of independent menopause ambassadors. Categories include Most Impactful Social Campaign and Best Employer Support for the Menopause. Winners will be announced in August 2022.
