Event Details

In this session, Sam will discuss her work with GenM and will explore the shocking statistics on the menopause and perimenopause from GenM’s Invisibility Report that underpin their mission.

Sam will also explain why the menopause is more than a medical issue, a workplace issue, or a gender issue, but is actually a business opportunity. She will also reveal what we can all do to help normalise the conversation around the menopause.
