The CIPD work in partnership with Haymarket Media Group Ltd to deliver CIPD Festival of Work
Fertility in the Workplace Development Officer, Fertility Network UK
My role within the team is to assist with the growing need to help educate companies to better understand the fertility journey women go through, and the impact it has on them and the workplace.
I had 9 rounds of IVF and am fortunate to finally have my child. My previous role was a full-time brand manager and I found it difficult to balance my working life along with the gruelling journey of IVF. It took everything I had to keep going and I often felt very isolated and alone at work. My journey has made me passionate about helping others going through IVF, and I feel my personal experience provides me with a better awareness and understanding of fertility issues at work. I am excited to see what impact we can all have on fertility in the workplace and help the thousands of women who are forced down this path.
