Earlier this month we celebrated Womens Health Week with the theme ‘Grow your Knowledge’. Here at Jnine we championed this theme by working closely with Ampol Australia to help deliver a women’s health week event discussing menstrual health, endometriosis and peri/menopause, open to everyone, men and women, to grow their knowledge.
The BriefJnine was engaged by Ampol to facilitate a Company-wide Lunch & Learn presentation on a women’s health topic, in person and online.
We had detailed conversations with the team at Ampol about the right topics to discuss that would complement existing Employee Wellbeing, Diversity and Engagement initiatives, and took advantage of poll results where employees indicated subjects that they wanted to hear about.
The session was held live at Ampol’s Brisbane refinery and screened to other locations via video link. A gift bag containing menstrual wellness products were provided for all in-person attendees.
We kept it casual. This was the first time Ampol hosted an event focussed on women’s health and being a male dominated workplace, it was important for us to get the message right - without being too detailed or graphic. We provided an open forum and encouraged questions and engagement.
Our presentation featured Jess Taylor from QENDO who spoke about endometriosis, menstrual health and peri/menopause and the impact these conditions can have on women in the workplace.
Both men and women came to the lunch and learn, in fact a male was the first through the door to learn more for his wife and daughter.
The Q & A was fantastic with many questions asked and experiences shared. Jess Taylor and Jnine’s founder, Janine Coppeller, made sure it was relatable, and discussed their own personal experiences.
The team from Ampol later advised that our Lunch & Learn session had the most attendees for 2023, with overwhelmingly positive feedback. The team were especially thrilled with the feedback from men, who wanted to increase their understanding of what their partner, or daughters were going through, so they could provide better support to their loved ones at home.
