Returning to work after a miscarriage is not an easy thing, and workplaces need to be considerate of women and their partner's needs. We're proud to launch our latest research piece in collaboration with The University of Sydney. We always underpin the changes we champion with evidence and empathy, we value listening to the experiences of many to inform our programs.
This research has already driven so much change, it was used to support our LEAVE FOR LOSS campaign. Where we successfully lobbied Federal Government to amend The Fairwork Act of Australia to include miscarriage under the bereavement/compassionate leave act in the National Employee Standards.
It has also been used to inform the development of our Pink Elephants Workplace Program. Ensuring that the programs we offer truly meet the needs of our community. We know firsthand how hard it can be to go back to work after a miscarriage or pregnancy loss, we want to ensure you are met with empathy and understanding. We no longer want to hear heartbreaking stories of women hiding crying in bathroom stalls or presenting in board rooms as they bleed.
With this in mind, let's dig into what our latest research conveyed to us.
