Whether you're an entrepreneur or working in a corporate environment, the experiences that we face as women are often completely misunderstood, and lead to stigmatization — or worse yet, penalization.
So what does it take to effectively work through mental health or reproductive struggles? How does one combat the prejudice that comes along with aging? What do organizations need to do to support their talent and change internal perceptions around women's health?
On October 29, we sit down with three groundbreaking experts who will not only share their personal stories, but also reveal key learnings for any woman navigating mental health, ageism or fertility challenges. Together they will help unpack associated stigmas in the workplace and the resulting impact on career growth, while providing tangible insights for a path forward.
Meet the Panelists:
Dr. Vivien Brown: As a preeminent family physician and VP of Medical Affairs at Medisys Health Group, a company focused on advancing preventative health, Dr. Brown has won countless accolades and board appointments for her extensive work in the field. Her recent best-seller 'A Woman's Guide to Healthy Aging - Seven essential ways to keep you vital, happy and strong', has become critical reading for any woman as they advance in their career.
Dr. Marjorie Dixon: As CEO and Medical Director of Anova Fertility, Dr. Dixon is an award-winning entrepreneur and a leading industry expert on women's reproductive health. In three years she has grown Anova Fertility from a staff of 8 to over 80 and brought world-class innovations to Canada.
