About this Event

Aotearoa Period Hui

An event by The Period Place

Ellen Melville Centre - 2 Freyberg Place, Auckland

9:30am - 4pm

Saturday 2nd November 2019

Featuring Dr. Sarah Donovan, opening speaker.

The first of its kind, this hui will formally recognise the following issues in Aotearoa of:

  • period stigma and its impact on menstruators and society
  • the widespread lack of quality menstrual education for all genders
  • systemic period poverty

This hui will bring together the wealth of knowledge that exists within this incredible industry.

From 9.30am, academics through to activists will inspire us as they share their knowledge and experience of these core issues.

The hui will be facilitated by Laura Ansell, Impact Consultant at The Ākina Foundation.

The morning session of the hui will feature two main elements:

  • Dr Sarah Donovan, from Otago University in Wellington as opening speaker;
  • a panel discussion.

The afternoon session is where we start to put our heads together to delve in to these problems, discuss some ideas, and prioritise some solutions to take in to 2020.

A networking drinks will be held in a nearby venue following the close of the hui.

We can't wait to see you!

*Specific timing or other elements may develop further. Any changes will be notified to all ticket holders.

Please share the event with people in your contacts who work within the period industry. That could be academics, researchers, product manufacturers, charities, health professionals, school nurses, government representatives you name it - if you are working in a field related to menstrual management we want you to come and join in the kōrero.

This event has a tiered ticketing pricing system, to make it accessible to all areas of the period industry. If you are unsure where you fit, please get in touch with Sarah Mikkelsen sarah@theperiodplace.co.nz. Tickets will be required for entry.
