Lynda has been secretary to the MoJ’s SWIM network (Supporting the Workplace in Menopause) since it began. She signed up because she wanted to help colleagues who were transitioning, remain in work longer and have access to the support available. In her voluntary role, she administrates the list of 450 members, co-ordinates fortnightly mailings including relevant speakers, blogs, articles and events as well as managing the dedicated mailbox. The quarterly newsletter, which she produces, has attracted attention from other departments and senior civil servants. The co-chair of the network says simply “Lynda is one (essential) ingredient that keeps this network going”.
