Global Menopause Month; Naomi Watts, Stacy London, Julie Gordon White
October is Global Menopause Month and we are seeing major momentum in the movement to change the experience for all women! So many wonderful events were planned by our partners in NYC, so team Bossa packed up and headed east!

First up, was The New Pause Symposium from new company Stripes founded by actress Naomi Watts, and The Swell, her new online community. This event featured so many incredible speakers with messages about how to up level and change your life now. For more details on the speakers check out this podcast from our friend and midlife advocate, Jen Marples, host of "You're Not Too F**ing Old!. Jen's amazing so follow her on Instagram @jenmarples and check out her recap episode on the Symposium (she took excellent notes!) sharing top tips from the amazing speakers including:

*Aimee Cox @aimee_mere who walked us through a powerful meditation that helped us visualize the support of our ancestors behind our backs. 
*Dr. Suzanne Gilberg-Lenz @askdrsuzanne who shared some important facts about menopause and encouraged everyone to find a doctor that supports their unique perimenopause journey. 
*Regena Thomashauer @mamagena who reconnects women with their most powerful source and removing the shame and negativity around a word we often try to avoid. 
*Dr. Kelly Casperson @kellycaspersonmd who came to remind us that we are not broken and to promote sexual health and wellness. 
*Amanda Thebe @amanda.thebe who shared the four most important things for us to focus on at midlife for wellness. 
*Natalie Nixon @natwnixon who gave us the permission to not dwell on midlife but to reframe it instead as something amazing.

Next up was the CEO Summit hosted by Stacy London of State of Menopause. This event was for the leaders of the industry to connect and share so we can continue to push the space forward and meet more women looking for solutions to midlife concerns. It was so inspiring and powerful to be in a room with female founders (and one guy!) who are doing good and making waves in the business of menopause. 
On Wednesday, we had a double header. First we made a trek to Times Square to see our philanthropic partner, LetsTalkMenopause.org's amazing ad, "When It's Never Sweater Weather. Seeing menopause called out in one of the most visited places in the world was a pinch me moment! 
And the week culminated with a panel discussion from our friends at Caire Beauty and Hot Flashes and Cool Topics, when they hosted The Marvelous Mrs. Menopause event on the 74th floor of the World Trade Center. Panelists included Dr. Carol Kuhle of The Mayo Clinic, Ann Garnier of Midday Health, Veronica Webb, Denise Pines of Tea Botanics, Laura Crain of Perry, Donna Klassen of Let's Talk Menopause, Stacy London, and Jennifer Walsh.  Meeting all of our partners in person was such a treat and the energy in the room was palpable.
Overall, it was a FANTASTIC week! We came away with an even bigger sense of mission, and can't wait to bring you more cutting-edge education, partnerships, and exciting offers in the coming months!
