Event description

Description

We are excited to invite you to the first all-Wales Menopause Summit in Wales.

The menopause remains an unspoken health care challenge in workplaces and across society in Wales. There is a combined lack of scientific research, lack of knowledge amongst health care professionals and a lack of knowledge for women themselves who are going through the menopause.

Nearly all women will experience the menopause at some point in their lives and yet with so little public discourse on the issue many women are left to go through it alone without support or understanding from family, friends, colleagues, employers or health care providers. We aim to change this in Wales.

This summit aims to change that, to bring the menopause out into the open and kick-start the conversation to discuss the challenges women face, whilst creating an agenda for change across Wales.


The event will include inspiring speakers and personal stories to inform and educate; workshops and discussion groups to share best practice and ask the difficult questions; as well as action-focussed conversations to explore solutions and implement change across Wales.

Rydym yn falch iawn o’ch gwahodd i’r Uwchgynhadledd Menopos gyntaf ar gyfer Cymru.

Mae’r menopos yn dal i fod yn un o’r heriau cudd o ran gofal iechyd mewn gweithleoedd ac yn y gymdeithas yng Nghymru. Mae’n gyfuniad o ddiffyg ymchwil gwyddonol, diffyg gwybodaeth ymysg arbenigwyr gofal iechyd, a diffyg gwybodaeth i fenywod sy’n mynd trwy'r menopos.

Bydd y rhan fwyaf o fenywod yn mynd trwy’r menopos ar ryw adeg yn ystod eu bywydau, ac eto, gan fod cyn lleied o drafodaethau cyhoeddus ar y mater, mae llawer o fenywod yn gorfod mynd drwy’r menopos ar eu pen eu hunain, heb unrhyw gefnogaeth na dealltwriaeth gan eu teuluoedd, ffrindiau, cydweithwyr, cyflogwyr, na darparwyr gofal. Ein nod yw newid hyn yng Nghymru.

Nod yr uwchgynhadledd hon yw newid hynny, gan ddod â’r menopos allan i'r agored, a dechrau sgwrs i drafod yr heriau mae menywod yn eu hwynebu, a chreu agenda ar gyfer creu newid ledled Cymru.

Yn y digwyddiad hwn, bydd cyfle i glywed siaradwyr ysbrydoledig, ac i glywed storïau personol pobl er mwyn cyflwyno gwybodaeth ac i addysgu eraill. Bydd gweithdai a grwpiau trafod yn cael eu cynnal er mwyn rhoi cyfle i bobl rannu arferion da, ac i ofyn y cwestiynau anodd; bydd cyfle hefyd i sgwrsio am sut i weithredu er mwyn ymchwilio i atebion i broblemau, ac i sicrhau newid ledled Cymru.

Ar gyfer pwy?

Mae croeso i bawb...

  • Menywod a dynion sydd eisiau dysgu am y menopos, neu sydd eisiau rhannu eu profiadau
  • Cyflogwyr ac Undebau Llafur
  • Fforymau Busnes
  • Arbenigwyr gofal iechyd (Meddygon Teulu, Ymgynghorwyr, Doctoriaid, ffisiotherapyddion, nyrsys arbenigol ac ati)
  • Gwneuthurwyr Polisi, Iechyd Cyhoeddus Cymru a Llywodraeth Cymru
  • Elusennau a sefydliadau Gwirfoddol sy’n gweithio gyda menywod, ac ar eu cyfer
  • Academyddion ac Ymchwilwyr

Tocynnau a Bwrsarïau

Digwyddiad nid-er-elw yw hwn, ond mae tocynnau yn costio £35 y pen er mwyn talu costau cynnal yr Uwchgynhadledd.

Rydym hefyd yn cynnig nifer cyfyngedig o fwrsarïau am ddim i fenywod sydd ddim mewn gwaith neu sydd ar dâl isel, na fyddai fel arall yn gallu mynychu'r digwyddiad. Rydym yn chwilio am noddwyr i’w helpu i dalu am gostau teithio’r menywod hyn, fel y gallwn sicrhau cynrychiolaeth o bob rhan o Gymru.

Am ragor o wybodaeth, cysylltwch â kat@shareimpact.org neu ffoniwch 07715415267
