Four simple things you can do as an employer:

Period products at work

Getting caught short at work is an embarrassing experience. It’s cheap and easy to ensure there are free period products in office

How do I do this:

A space to talk

Many people don’t feel able to talk about their periods – especially in the workplace. Creating occasional safe spaces for people to share experiences can be incredibly powerful. It helps women feel that they are not suffering alone, it helps colleagues understand each other, and it allows male employees to be supportive allies.
