Power Women: Mental Health at Work

Whether you work in an enterprise organisation or a startup, paying attention to mental health in the workplace has never been more important. Mental health problems can affect anyone, at any time, and we believe we need to support each other and keep talking so we can create lasting change.

Join us to hear from two speakers who will share their stories about how mental health has affected them and those around them.

This is the seventh event in our Power Women series, with previous events being held in London, New York and Dublin. Each event is unique and combines inspiring speakers and the opportunity to network with other like-minded individuals.
