Carole Ann Clarke, Managing Director of I Am Here, will be joined by menopause experts Loretta Dignam, founder of The Menopause Hub and Dorcas Barry, Associate Trainer for Ireland at Henpicked: Menopause in the Workplace. This informative panel discussion will cover topics relating to women’s experiences during menopause and how the workplace can support women during this important time.
Research shows that menopause can start very early, so this webinar is relevant for women of every age, supporting partners and business leaders.
Understanding, compassion, listening, empathy, acceptance and being real are the guiding principles of a supportive working environment where women can thrive and during menopause.

Collectively, we want to reduce the number of suicides in society. Understanding the mindset of those who are at risk of suicide, how to intervene to provide a safety net and how to signpost help and support are vital steps to making this a reality. Equally, understanding how to deal with the impact of a suicide in order to support family, friends and community, is prevention for the next generation.
Join Carole Ann Clarke, Founding Member & Managing Director Europe of I Am Here, for an open and informative webinar that will give us all Courage and Confidence to embrace the discussion around suicide.
This panel event will feature world renowned suicidologist Barry McGale, advisor to I Am Here, Suicide Prevention Consultant & Trainer with Suicide Bereavement UK and Livingworks Inc. and Patron for the Support After Suicide Partnership. He is also a Director of The National Suicide Research Foundation (Ireland).
Carole Ann will also be joined by Dr. Rory O’Connor, President of the International Association for Suicide Prevention and Director of the Suicidal Behaviour Research Laboratory, Glasgow University. Rory has just published a book called “When It Is Darkest: Why People Die by Suicide and What We Can Do to Prevent It”.
Each suicide directly impacts 135 people across the workplace, family, friend circles and communities. The conversation that needs to be had includes us all.
At I Am Here, our mission is to create a workplace where it’s ok not to feel ok; and it’s absolutely ok to ask for help.
The companies that we partner with recognise the importance of developing a culture of compassion and overcoming the barriers to seeking help. As a society, we’ve been conditioned to be cautious about revealing anything that might be seen as a weakness, especially in the workplace. Revising this attitude requires a deep cultural shift that is led from the top down and is created by encouraging new beliefs and behaviours, over time.
During this webinar, which will be facilitated by Margaret Considine - CEO EQuita Group, you will hear from four companies leading the charge in creating this cultural shift.
These companies and their leaders are passionate about supporting their employee’s mental health and wellbeing and creating a more supportive and caring workplace. They’ve seen the results that have come from building trust with their teams and engaging in more open and honest conversations in the workplace.
Our panellists are:
• Nicola Gillen MD of Governance, Core
• Steve Bowcott CEO, John Sisk & Son
• Mary McGillycuddy HR Manager, TLI Group
• Alan O’Grady MD, Western Postform
Carole Ann Clarke will be joined by Elvin Box MCIOB MBA, Chair London Constructing Excellence; International Construction and Innovation Consultant, and a Community Ambassador for the global men’s health charity, Movember.
Elvin has worked in the construction industry since leaving school at 16, when he joined a traditional London Building company to undertake an apprenticeship in carpentry and joinery.
During his life he has experienced trauma both on site; going to the aid of a fellow worker, who tragically fell six floors to his death, and in his personal life through diagnosis and treatment for Prostate cancer.
We will highlight the need to approach Health and safety with wellbeing in mind v physical safety - meeting the needs of workers in a holistic manner (the person across all wellbeing pillars).
As chair of the London Constructing excellence, Elvin will share their vision behind the future of work where no worker will be left without support. We will also talk about best practice across the industry.

Society has fundamentally changed in the last 20 years. 50% of married women are working. There has been a massive shift around equality of women both in the workplace and society, which will continue until parity in areas like equal pay are achieved.
What has all of this meant for men? Their roles in society have been changing and yet, who has supported men through this change? How do we create a thriving society for future generations where we are all working together and an increase in women’s rights does not result in the erosion of masculinity?
Carole Ann Clarke from I Am Here will talk with Natasha Jones, Founder of Effective Law, and author of ‘Mandemic,’ a book dedicated to masculinity in a bid to help men create healthy habits to improve and maintain mental health and wellbeing.
Sean Aherne from GFG Alliance winner of the global Shine award and Men's mental health advocate will join us from Australia to talk about his work to encourage more men to talk about their mental health and wellbeing.
We will discuss the main changes in modern society and the impact that this has had on men. We will also discuss how we can support men through this chaotic time. How creating new habits around wellbeing will impact their quality of life. We will talk about ways in which we can empower men with courage, confidence, and skills to support each other during tough times and how to provide an environment where it’s ok not to feel ok; and it’s absolutely ok to ask for help.
While this webinar is focusing on men’s mental health and wellbeing, we welcome partners, employees, siblings and family members. Collective societal understanding is key to creating a positive and compassionate world.Find out more »
