A VOICE TOO LOUD
We believe the menopause is not solely a gender, workplace or diversity and inclusion issue. Instead, it is a sum of all parts that affects all of society, either directly or indirectly.
It’s why, by purposefully uniting brands, organisations and employers under GenM, we can all unite and pledge to better support and connect with those impacted - and ultimately, improve the menopause experience for all.
THE 48 SYMPTOMS*
OF THE MENOPAUSE
Most people know that hot flushes are associated with the menopause, but far less is known about the other symptoms. Our pioneering Invisibility Report uncovered 48 menopausal symptoms, but 51% of women can name only three.
We believe raising awareness and normalising the conversation is key to improving the menopause experience. Because the more informed we are, the more impactful the changes we can make as brands and organisations.

ARE YOU READY TO
LEAD THE CHANGE?
We’re calling for all brands, organisations and employers, big and small, to act on our mission and seize the opportunity to appeal to an underserved audience in an ethical way. Together, we can drive much-needed change for ‘the change’, and help everyone affected feel better supported, understood and represented.

Our nationwide Invisibility Report uncovered a new depth of insight on the distinct lack of support, education and knowledge on the menopause, as well as the extent to which women feel invisible.
These valuable findings shape the foundations for all that we want to achieve at GenM.

THE MENOPAUSE AFFECTS EVERYONE
No one person’s menopause is the same - and not everyone experiences a ‘bad’ menopause. But even if anyone says, “it’s not that bad”, it would suggest it could be better.
It’s why GenM supports those in menopause and their support networks to take control and manage their symptoms, their way. So those affected can be the best version of themselves
