Closing the Gender Health Gap in the Workplace: Hong Kong Edition

From menstruation to menopause, the menstrual cycle plays a critical role in the every day physical and mental wellbeing of millions of people in Hong Kong. Yet it is an experience that remains widely overlooked, especially in the workplace.

But that is changing.

For two and a half years, LUÜNA has been providing our custom programs to close the gender health gap in the workplace. We have earned the trust of Fortune 500 companies, corporations, brands and SME's who are now taking the step to support the hormone health needs of their employees through our LUÜNA AT WORK programs.

For this event, LUÜNA founder, Olivia, is joined by individuals who have also been driving forces in the promotion of menstrual equity in Hong Kong's workplaces. With them, we promise an evening of open, honest and insightful discussion, welcoming everyone - yes, everyone - to join us. So come along and bring a male ally with you!

Last but not least, every attendee will receive a LUÜNA x Supergoop self-care gift bag. Each product is designed for self-care, and there's something in there for everyone.

Event Details:

  • 6:00pm – 6:50pm - Welcome: Grab a drink (prosecco or soft), browse and shop the selection of wellness brands at Beauty Botanica, chat with guests and share your thoughts on our Period Pioneer Wall of Fame
  • 6:50pm- 7:10pm - LUÜNA Menstrual Equity Quiz: Simply scan the QR code and share your answers anonymously to get warmed up for the discussion ahead
