Clifford Chance strengthens support for colleagues during menopause and life transitions with launch of Peppy in the UK
International law firm Clifford Chance has partnered with Peppy, a digital healthcare and wellbeing platform that allows organisations to support their people during major life transitions – menopause, fertility and parenthood. The secure mobile app connects users to real-life experts, offers supportive guidance and access to community networks. The support is 24/7 and Clifford Chance is introducing Peppy to all colleagues in the UK from 1 March 2021.
Clifford Chance UK Managing Partner, Michael Bates, comments: "To deliver on the firm's inclusion strategy of 'change the rules, change the culture and change the lived experience', we must make targeted interventions to ensure that equality of experience becomes the reality at Clifford Chance. With over half of our colleagues inevitably experiencing menopause at some point in their lives, and many others dealing with the challenges of fertility, and parenthood whilst at work- it is vital that we open the conversation around these stages and deliver additional support to meet our goal of being an inclusive workplace for all."
Mridula Pore, CEO and Co-Founder of Peppy comments: "We are delighted to be launching Peppy with Clifford Chance, who will now offer personalised support for menopause, fertility and parenthood to all employees and partners in the UK. Its position as a leading law firm, and campaigner for inclusion, makes this a key moment for family and reproductive health support across the legal profession, bringing us one step closer to achieving our mission of supporting all people through these significant life transitions."
