Hear from leading experts in the field on matters pertaining to women’s health in the workplace.
The Consulate’s February Business Breakfast “Women’s Health in the Workplace” coincides with this year’s Brigid Festival Vancouver (February 1 – 4), a festival celebrating the contributions that Irish women have made globally.
In the workplace, there is no denying the great strides women have made in recent years. Nevertheless, there are still many barriers to overcome for women in the labour force. One of these is the treatment, awareness and knowledge of women’s health issues.
Conditions such as menopause, fertility and maternity issues, are just some of the health issues that are still not discussed in the workplace, leaving women to suffer in silence. Such health issues could negatively impact women’s productivity and hamper their careers and future development.
Hear from Lori Guiton, Director of Policy Regulation & Research and Dr. Olivia Sampson, MD, CCFP, MPH, RCPSC, on how best to support women’s health issues in the workplace and get tips on how to self-advocate should these issues arise with your employer.
The Consulate look forward to you joining this great event.
