LGBTQ+ and Allies Networking event
Following the resounding success of our inaugural LGBTQ+ and Allies Networking event last year, we are thrilled to extend an invitation to our upcoming follow-up event on Thursday, 8th February 2024.
As we celebrate LGBTQ+ History Month 2024, we are eager to build on the momentum and positive energy generated at this year’s event. This event serves as an opportunity for networking, making connections, and continuing the important conversation around Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion within the pro-manchester community.
Similar to last year, there will be a short educational element to the evening. In line with this year’s LGBT+ History Month theme, “Medicine”, the session will focus on menopause including what it is, the symptoms and LGBQT+ experiences.
Complimentary welcome drinks will be served from around 5:30-6pm followed by canapes / finger food.
The event is kindly hosted and sponsored by the Manchester Marriott Victoria & Albert Hotel which is located on Water Street (postcode: M3 4JQ).
About the Speakers:
After a career spent working within the data industry, including 18 years as the Managing Director of an internationally based corporate, Lisa decided to change focus and pursue a business opportunity based upon her lifelong interest in sport, nutrition, health, and well-being. Following the completion of a Masters’ degree in Exercise and Nutrition Science at University of Chester, , Lisa founded MtWW. Lisa’s interest in the subject was triggered by her dissertation research project examing the impact of Vitamin D on menopausal symptoms experienced by female endurance athletes. She has undertaken menopause specific training with the International Menopause Society, Newson Health Menopause Society and continues to update her knowledge around all aspects of female hormonal health.
MtWW helps organisations and individuals to manage the impact of this life transition that women will experience. Support and guidance are available for diverse groups including:
• senior leaders, enabling them to understand the business impact.
• managers, who may have menopausal team members and need to have difficult conversations.
• female employees, providing evidence-based information and support around all aspects of the perimenopause and menopause.
• male employees wishing to support their partners.
