WHEE 4 Wales Llandudno Junction 23/10/19

FTWW is excited to invite you to the first ever 

Women’s Health Equality Event for Wales

in Llandudno Junction, North Wales

on Wednesday, 23rd October, 2019, 10am – 4pm

SAVE THE DATE!!!
 

WHEE Wales is a Women’s Health Equality Event which aims to bring women, healthcare professionals, and policy-makers together in one place for constructive, positive conversations about how to ensure the health and well-being of our future generations of women and girls, bringing the issues and challenges out into the open and coming up with solutions.

WHEE Wales is needed because women’s health isn’t always considered when it comes to medical research or government policy. Women themselves often report having their needs neglected or not taken seriously when it comes to reporting symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, or service provision. This event aims to change that.

With a membership of over 1000 women across the country, and a network far beyond that, Fair Treatment for the Women of Wales (FTWW) has listened to their voices and created  WHEE Wales in response.

WHEE Wales will include inspiring speakers and personal stories to inform and educate; workshops and discussion groups to share best practice and ask the difficult questions; as well as action-focused conversations to explore solutions and begin the process of change across Wales, by and for women themselves and those providing services across the nation.

We’d love to see you there!

Mae FTWW yn edrych ymlaen at eich croesawu chi i’r Digwyddiad Cydraddoldeb Iechyd Menywod cyntaf erioed i Gymru

 

yng Nghyffordd Llandudno, Gogledd Cymru

Ddydd Mercher, 23ain Hydref 2019, 10am – 4pm

CADWCH Y DYDDIAD YN RHYDD!!

Digwyddiad Cydraddoldeb Iechyd Menywod yw WHEE Cymru a’i nod yw dod â menywod, gweithwyr gofal Iechyd proffesiynol a gwneuthurwyr polisi ynghyd mewn un lle ar gyfer sgyrsiau adeiladol, cadarnhaol, am sut i sicrhau iechyd a lles cenedlaethau menywod a merched y dyfodol, gan ddod â’r materion a’r sialensiau allan i’r agored a chynnig atebion.

Mae angen WHEE Cymru am nad yw iechyd menywod wastad yn cael ei ystyried wrth ymdrin ag ymchwil feddygol neu bolisi llywodraeth. Mae menywod eu hunain yn dweud yn aml fod eu hanghenion yn cael eu hesgeuluso neu nad ydynt yn cael eu cymryd o ddifrif pan fyddant yn sôn am symptomau, diagnosis, triniaeth neu ddarpariaeth gwasanaethau. Nod y digwyddiad hwn yw newid hynny.

Gydag aelodaeth o fwy na 1000 o fenywod ar draws y wlad, a rhwydwaith ymhell y tu hwnt i hynny, mae Fair Treatment for the Women of Wales (FTWW) wedi gwrando ar eu lleisiau a chreu WHEE Cymru mewn ymateb.

Bydd WHEE Cymru yn cynnwys siaradwyr ysbrydoledig a storïau personol i roi gwybodaeth ac addysgu; gweithdai a grwpiau trafod i rannu’r arferion gorau a gofyn cwestiynau anodd; yn ogystal â sgyrsiau sy’n canolbwyntio ar weithredu i archwilio atebion a dechrau’r broses newid ar draws Cymru, gan ac ar gyfer menywod eu hunain a’r rhai sy’n darparu gwasanaethau ar draws y genedl.

Byddai’n wych eich gweld chi yno!

Mae croeso i bawb…

  • Pobl sydd eisiau dysgu am iechyd menywod, neu sydd eisiau rhannu eu profiadau
  • Gweithiwr gofal iechyd proffesiynol
  • Gwneuthurwyr Polisi, Iechyd Cyhoeddus Cymru a Llywodraeth Cymru
  • Elusennau a sefydliadau gwirfoddol sy’n gweithio gyda menywod a throstynt
  • Academyddion ac Ymchwilwyr
  • Cyflogwyr ac Undebau Llafur

Rhannwch y wybodaeth hon gyda’ch cydweithwyr, ffrindiau ac eraill a fyddai â diddordeb mewn dod i’r digwyddiad.

Gallwch gofrestru >YMA i ddod i’r digwyddiad

Gobeithiwn y gallwch ymuno â ni, ac edrychwn ymlaen at gael cadarnhad y byddwch yn bresennol.
