FERTILITY IN FOCUS: CREATING A CULTURE OF UNDERSTANDING WEBINAR

Wednesday 26 June 2024, 1:30pm AEST

How can human resources teams and their organisations support employees undergoing fertility treatment?

One in six Australians experience infertility, and the emotional, time-consuming experience is increasingly impacting the workplace.

Understanding what support employers can and should provide is a complicated landscape. Virtus Health and FW are partnering to help leading HR professionals and the organisations they represent understand how they can support employees as they navigate their fertility journeys.

Join Jamila Rizvi, FW’s Deputy Managing Director, in conversation with Suzi Hullick, Westpac's Group Head of Diversity Equity & Inclusion, Dr Manny Mangat from IVF Australia, and Kiri Stejko, Chief Operating Officer at Parents At Work, as they discuss fertility policy and fertility leave in workplaces in 2024.
