Welcome to our events page. Here we showcase online and offline events that 2to3days and members of our community are running.
Some of these events will be in partnership with 2to3days whilst others will be run independently of us. The golden thread that links all these events together is the advancement of women in the workplace through the power of flexible working.
Over the course of the year we will promote a wide range of topics that we think will be interesting to our community. If you would like 2to3days to host an event with you, or help market it, please contact us to find out more.

Break the workplace taboo: the menopause and your career
Tuesday July 5th at 12 Noon
According to the Guardian "almost a million women in the UK have left their jobs because of menopausal symptoms". Yet, women aged 40-55 are often at the peak of their careers and have so much value, experience, and knowledge to give. It’s time that more companies put support structures in place for women and create a culture where everyone feels comfortable talking about the menopause.
In our second talk we welcome a regular contributor to the 2to3days community, Victoria McLean, Founder & CEO of City CV to focus on coping with the menopause at work.
• What the perimenopause and menopause are
• The impact of experiencing the menopause in the workplace
• Why women at menopausal age are leaving employment
• How to support women at work, with plenty of practical solutions and real-life examples.
