WIMIN Webinar: Menopause - what we need to know
All welcome to join this one hour menopause awareness presentation covering the who, what, why, when, where and how of the menopause and how it can affect individuals. Knowledge is power. Providing everyone with a basic menopause education, no matter their age or gender, creates shift within an organisation. Taking the lid off the taboo encourages open dialogue and with it, support for colleagues who are experiencing menopausal symptoms.
By the end of the session, delegates will have an understanding:
- What is Menopause?
- Causes of Menopause
- Three stages of Menopause
- 40+ Symptoms
- Menopausal symptoms triggers
- Self Care
- Phytoestrogens (plant based estrogens)
- Work and Menopause
- Empowering Choices
Diane Evans is a mum of three grown up children with two granddaughters and a passion for helping others. She has been a health and wellness coach for over 12 years supporting clients as they make positive lifestyle changes to help them become fitter and healthier. It has always been my purpose to help others and make a difference.
"It was whilst I travelled my own menopausal journey and fearing I was seriously ill, suffering from dementia or a brain tumour that I realised how little I knew about menopause and its possible effects. I discovered I wasn’t alone having talked to many women and carrying out over three years of research into all aspects of menopause.
During my menopause transition I took up open water swimming and I’m a trainee marathon runner. I diversified my business to concentrate on menopause health education. I chose to embrace rather than endure my menopause journey and I empower others to do the same. Anything and everything is possible once you know how".
Menopause really does matter.
What Diane has to share with businesses
80% of women suffer to some degree (some more, and some to a lesser degree) from the side effects of depleting hormones, through peri-pause, menopause and post-menopause. It’s a natural transition in every woman’s life which can not only affect her at home but in the workplace too.
Diane found that there was lots of information, much of it confusing so she devised workshops to help menopausal women take control of their menopausal health using nutrition and lifestyle changes. Education is key to understanding and managing menopause, allowing the individual to make informed choices on how they choose to manage their own menopause health.
Menopause not only needs to be managed by the individual, it needs to be supported and managed within organisations too. Managers and HR need to know how menopause symptoms can impact upon an employee’s life and what support and reasonable adjustments look like so that menopause becomes part of normal conversations just like mental health policies and maternity policies are, instead of it being a taboo subject surrounded by embarrassment and fear of ridicule, where individuals are needlessly suffering in silence.
Men and women are affected by menopause. We all know someone who is going through this transition right now whether it be a friend,a colleague or a loved one. Education for all is a positive step any individual and organisation can make to offer support at what can often be a challenging time.
