Hey I am sharing the pictures from our panel held on the 29th of June in NYC - it gives a great idea of the format:


  1. Millennials start to enter the menopause age: how to enable the next generation to navigate this natural phase with knowledge & self-advocacy.
  2. How to go beyond driving awareness - how to initiate real action and change, especially by highlighting gaps in research and social disparities.
  3. Perimenopause At The Workplace - How to expand the concept of menopause-friendly work environments beyond white collar professions.
