About this event
In Honor of Women's Month, we are hosting a workshop about the female body in the workplace.
Talking about mental health in the workplace was taboo ten years ago. Now it's something many organizations are paying close attention to as it has a huge impact on employee well-being and productivity.
As workplaces become more and more human, employees are more and more willing to show their whole selves at work, whether that is being open about their mental health, gender identities, or cultural backgrounds.
But there are still a few taboo topics in the workplace. One of them is the female cycle.
It's time to break this taboo and allow all genders to be able to understand the power of the female body in the context of work.
Many females are muting their cycles and working against their bodies. It's time to learn more about the power of the female body and how honoring our cycles can transform the way we live and work for the better.
In this session, our speaker, Carmen Cordiviola, will:
- Educate us about the 4 stages of the female cycle
- Teach us how we can connect to the different powers associated with these stages at any time
- Introduce us to vocabulary we can use to normalize talking about the female cycle and
- Explore how we can leverage the power of the female body to become better leaders and colleagues
This workshop is for all genders and we will give you some tools to take back to your organizations to allow your female colleagues to bring another part of themselves to work.
This is a hard, yet important topic to discuss. Our intention is to educate individuals on the hormonal and menstrual cycle and how that relates to the way we work. It is also our intention to create environments where we foster belonging and acceptance. That said, there are times when we mess up. We want to learn! We even understand the title for this gathering isn't inclusive in nature. We are working to iterate the language we use to make this topic more inclusive. If you have ideas and/or feedback, please let us know.

Note: This is an interactive group workshop, however, there will *not* be any breakout sessions. Everyone can participate as little or as much as they feel comfortable. We hope this sets clear expectations and alleviates any uneasiness for the more introverted, especially that early in the morning.
We'll be wrapping up the formal part of the workshop for those who need to head off to work.
Carmen will stay online for an extra 15-30 minutes for those who want to continue the discussion or have follow-up questions.
For those joining us in person, we will stick around until 10AM to keep the discussion going for those who are interested and able to stay a bit longer.
