For many women, menopause is a natural stage of life, a time of change and opportunity.  However, menopause can also be a challenging time, symptoms can be a barrier to achievement or contentment and can happen at any age, whether natural, early, premature or induced.

Whether you are hosting a breakfast briefing about menopause, require a more in-depth talk for up to two hours, or are considering a “Takeover” event, HWAM provides a platform of positivity, information, and inspiration, supporting and empowering women at menopause, midlife and beyond.

The HWAM Talks, Training, and bespoke ‘Takeover’ events are tailored to meet individual needs; to inform, support and help women to take control and make informed choices about how they manage their menopause.  To raise awareness of how women should be supported for their own long-term health benefits and for the efficiency of our social and economic workforce.

Please note: all talks and programmes are currently through Zoom.
