Guest Speaker: Karen Arthur, Host of the Podcast Menopause Whilst Black
Wed, 15 June 2022
10:00 – 11:00 AM
You may recognise Karen from Davina McColl’s documentary on the Menopause. Karen is on a mission to demystify and diversify the Menopause. Karen lifts the veil on the inevitable and fundamental changes that every woman will go through, shedding light on the evolution of the female experience and the need for women to own their value and buck convention, stereotypes and the world’s attempts at erasure. All this with a wicked wit and uncompromising truth.
This session is open to all staff as we aim to foster greater understanding of this issue to allow colleagues to support team members who may be affected.
