50 years on from the Sex Discrimination Act, sexism is unfortunately still common at work. And yet studies repeatedly show that more diverse workplaces are more successful.In this episode, we discuss questions like:Do workplace policies sustain gender stereotypes?Has the pandemic successfully de-coupled gender from flexible working?Will the UK government reform gender pay gap reporting this year?Does a holiday really allow for “rest and relaxation” if the employee is suffering from menopause symptoms, menstrual pain or undergoing early-stage IVF treatment?We look at how gender equality issues are changing, and help HR and legal teams to navigate the risks, challenges and debates. We also highlight a story that considers: when is a sex discrimination case not a sex discrimination case?As employers continue to face challenges with recruitment and retention, it's more important than ever that they're able to show a strong hand with regards to ESG and ED&I issues.Useful links:Acas – Improving equality, diversity and inclusionThe Fawcett Society – Menopause and the workplace***Send us your questions and we'll answer them in a future episode – email emplawpodcast@tltsolicitors.com or tweet us using #TLTemploymentpodcast or @TLT_EmploymentYou can find out more about our employment team at tltsolicitors.com/employmentSign up to receive our updates at tltsolicitors.com/signupIf you've enjoyed listening, please rate us and write a review.

Reasons why abortion services need to be available you might not know (ft. Dr. Paul Thomas)

The reality is we don't talk about abortion in polite conversation. So we will today, so we can learn things. If you're of a certain age, you may know someone who's had an abortion or needed care at some point. But you don't know it. It's an emotional, private thing. But because of that, a lot of people don't know the medical reasons why safe access to these services is important. So the landmark Roe v. Wade reversal has huge impacts locally here on Michigan and Metro Detroit. Especially in wake of Beaumont's quick adopting of the court-blocked 1931 law in Michigan (and quick reversal) - it's a reminder this situation is quickly changing. Some of the topics we get into: - Dangerous ectopic pregnancies - Miscarriages for various reasons and the aftermath - The fuzzy lines these decisions and laws leave for doctors and care providers - The shaky future of IVF in a post-Roe world and under a strict Michigan law - Actual data about who has abortions and why - The abdication of responsibility when a health system makes a snap decision, leaving its doctors without guidance - The inequity this would create as the rich, wealthy and powerful will still continue to have access to safe abortions - The importance of talking with your doctor and making sure they share your values Our guide is Dr. Paul Thomas from Plum Health Direct Primary Care. Being that he's an independent primary care physician, he can talk about this issue with clarity — without having to run all the answers through a PR department or worry if he's going to be cut off by a health system. More: https://www.plumhealthdpc.com/ A couple notes about this episode: 1) This just starts to scratch the surface. There's a lot more out there to talk about, and no one episode could encapsulate everything.  2) This is understandably triggering content for some people. I truly get why you wouldn't listen. Honestly, some of it because of my life experience was difficult to produce. 3) Also, some parents may not feel ok having their children listen to this, depending on their development or age level. I want to give the heads up on that. Daily Detroit's work is funded in large part by our members.

Supreme Court Insider Perspective - A Conversation with Jan Crawford on the Abortion Decision

As we continue to determine the fallout of Friday's Supreme Court decision, Mosheh speaks to CBS Chief Legal Correspondent Jan Crawford for insight into the rulings and what they mean for the future of abortion in America as well as issues like same-sex marriage, IVF and contraception. Crawford has nearly three decades of experience covering the court. She has a law degree from the University of Chicago and has reported on the Supreme Court for the Chicago Tribune, PBS, ABC and CBS News. When Mosheh last spoke to her in January, she predicted that the court would overturn Roe v Wade and so there was no one better to get perspective on how the decision went down. Crawford brings clarity to the various opinions, why Roberts is effectively on an island, why Justice Thomas brought up things like same sex marriage and contraception in his solo opinion and whether it even matters. She then goes into what the various states might do next and brings a fascinating perspective to the history of the original Roe decision and how it may have actually hurt abortion rights long-term. They also spoke about whether cameras may come to the Supreme Court, concerns about the safety of the justices, the fate of the leak investigation and what to make of the accusations the justices lied in their confirmation hearings. It's a must-listen.  ----- Mosheh Oinounou (@mosheh) is an Emmy and Murrow award-winning producer with 20 years of experience at networks including Fox News, Bloomberg Television and CBS News, where he was the executive producer of the CBS Evening News and launched the network's 24 hour news channel.

We're in a conversation about what happens to our frozen embryos and the future of cryo storage with Cynthia Hudson, VP of Clinical Strategy & Specimen Services at TMRW, and Elizabeth Carr, the first IVF baby born in the United States. To give you a bit of background, Cynthia is an embryologist and medical technologist with over 20 years of experience in reproductive technology she has worked in, and founded, a number of leading IVF practices and designed multiple IVF laboratories and Natalie met with her in London to get a live demo of their technology. Elizabeth works with the company as part of their marketing team and shared her experience of life as the first  IVF baby in the US, and her decision to become work in the world of ART.  What was discussed  Explaining the TMRW system in the Cloud Opportunity to have lots of backups and a cynic's inventory is updated in a real team  How the system speeds up a lab and makes an embryologist's life easier  Cryo beacon - holds up to 8 cry devices - standard to what exists. It has a cap, so devices can't full out and it has a chip on it so it can be identified hands-free.  Explanation of freezing and how if the cells aren't treated before the temperature is lowered it will damage the embryo, so the water must be removed and replaced with a cry protectant.  How the freezing process has changed in the last 10-15 years. Taking the temp from 37 deg C to -1.96 in under 1 second  Previously walked around with buckets made of styrofoam and never had a purpose-built tool to move tissue safely around the lab. It has a see-through lid to never lose line of sight to the specimen.  How it is frozen, using iris recognition and then frozen.  Know the exact location of the beacon within the system  Numbers  - take the storage capability vertically.  In a standard clinic, they have to be manually filled, liquid nitrogen has to be at the right temp Some have over 100 dewers - has to be filled and monitored regularly. This tech does it automatically.  Overwatch 24 hours to make sure they know everything going on in every system.  Taking a lot of risk out of the process.  Elizabeth talks about how her parents had to leave the state they were living in to travel to a different one as it was illegal in the state they lived in.  Her childhood was shaped by the need for her to ‘look normal' as the topic of IVF was so she went into journalism  - because she was fed up with people asking stupid questions and decided at 10 years old she could do a better job  The conversations she has with the clinic conversation about cryo storage How the volume of specimens has increased, meaning the embryologists have to do a lot of extra processes - to manage them  How clinics become an accidental storage facility  Patients now are so much more educated and are asking more questions  To find out more visithttps://www.tmrw.org/ ( TMRW ) We really want to hear your thoughts on whether you think about where your embryos are stored and if this episode has got you thinking, so please email  info@thefertilitypodcast.com Insta: TMRW https://www.instagram.com/fertilitypoddy/ (Fertility Poddy) https://www.instagram.com/your_fertility_nurse/ (Kate )

We're digging into the fertility awareness method and how this can help us more accurately track our fertile days. Many women we work with have irregular cycles, absent cycles, absent cervical mucus, anovulation, excessive or light bleeding with periods, irregular basal body temperature and more. This can be very frustrating because our menstrual cycle gives us vital clues that tell us a lot about our fertility. And if you're relying on ovulation predictor kits, you may be missing essential information that can help optimize your preconception health. The good news is that our clients see dramatic positive changes in their cycle when they implement targeted diet and lifestyle changes outlined in our Fab Fertile Method.

It's time to go beyond therapy with Laurie Dierstein, a licensed clinical social worker and the owner of three integrated health clinics. She began Virginia Beach-based Reboot Mind-Body Health and now also has Reboot Functional Health and Reboot Intensive Programs. Each clinic serves a specific need of her patients with a mission of going beyond traditional styles of treatment by marrying them with holistic approaches. The goal is to motivate clients to become active participants in their overall health. We discuss something most high achievers have experienced, dealing with chronic stress and burnout. We talk about therapy and going beyond to heal the mind-body connection. Laurie is a past client, friend, and a fantastic guest on the show to talk about going beyond therapy and helping women live the extraordinary lives they were meant to be. Stay tuned until the end, when Laurie shares how everyone can start living a healthier and easier life and stop putting themselves last. Episode Highlights:  [02:59] Laurie owns three clinics based in Virginia Beach including Reboot Mind-Body Health, Reboot Functional Health Care, and Reboot Intensive Programs.  [03:20] Each clinic is slightly different to meet the needs of their patients. They are focused on a comprehensive approach to healing. [04:03] Laurie works with women who are high achievers and burnt out with chronic stress. They work on things like sleeplessness, irritability, mood changes, and infertility. [04:34] Laurie is also a mom and wife and has experienced many of the things that she treats women for. [06:38] Early on in her career, when Laurie was working with people who were dealing with mental health issues, she saw how burnt out the families were, especially the moms from dealing with all of it. [08:03] She also experienced her own difficulties with chronic stress. This has led her to look within and help heal herself. [09:43] During grad school, she experienced panic attacks while on the subway system in Boston. She had to figure out how to prevent this. [10:36] She also experienced infertility. Through IVF, she was able to have two lovely daughters. Unexplained infertility can often be a symptom of chronic stress. [13:40] Identify what you would do for a child and flip the script and do them for yourself. These are things like nutrition, sleep, and exercise. [16:12] We have so much information coming to us, we need to decide what information is right for us. Good information versus bad information. What does your body need? [18:30] People really need proper information about the nutrition that is right for them. Lab work can be very helpful. Sleep is also very important. [22:40] It's not normal to feel depressed and tired and sick all of the time. There's a better way. [25:53] Laurie shares one of her favorite client stories. It revolved around IVF treatment, anxiety, and eating gluten. She became more in tune with her body and foods she ate. She felt better, lost weight, and became less anxious. [30:36] Start tuning into the connection between your brain and your body. Slow down and spend time with yourself. Find a provider that can guide you towards the best direction for you. Find someone who has experience in holistic wellness or integrative practitioner.

In a world exclusive, Kate Bush speaks to Emma Barnett about being discovered by a new generation and making it to number 1 in the UK singles charts 44 years after her first chart-topper Wuthering Heights. Running Up That Hill was first released in 1985 and its use in the Netflix hit series Stranger Things has made Kate Bush a social media and streaming sensation. The physical and emotional challenges of in vitro fertilisation, or IVF, never fade from your memory - whatever the outcome. But what happens when you have been lucky enough to have a child or children and you still have frozen embryos in storage you are sure you will not use? You can donate to another couple in need, to science, let them be discarded or continue to preserve them. Alison Murdoch, Professor of Reproductive Medicine at Newcastle University and two women who have faced this join Emma. The comedians Katherine Ryan and Sara Pascoe have been making headlines in recent weeks following comments they made on Katherine's new TV show. Both revealed instances when they've worked with men they believe to be predatory and despite complaining these men have not been reprimanded. Emma is joined by Kathryn Roberts who quit comedy because of her experiences and also by Chloe Petts who will be performing her show Transience at the Edinburgh Fringe this summer. Olivia Harrison has penned a book of poetry called "Came the Lightening" to celebrate her husband, George Harrison's life, more than twenty years after his death.. As lead guitarist of The Beatles, his most famous songs included While My Guitar Gently Weeps, and Here Comes the Sun. What prompted her to share her memories in poetry? She tells Emma. As Wimbledon is set to begin on Monday, we discover the story behind Althea Gibson the first Black woman to win Wimbledon in 1957 and 1958. Writer and performer Kemi-Bo Jacobs was so inspired by her that she has written a one-woman play, 'All White Everything But Me' about her. She joins Anita to tell her more. The Treasury's Women in Finance Charter has published its annual review looking at gender diversity within the financial sector in the UK for 2021. Amanda Blanc is CEO of Aviva, the UK's leading insurer and leads the Women in Finance Charter and speaks to Emma about the review as well as her experiences of sexism as one of a handful of female FTSE 100 bosses.

The physical and emotional challenges of in vitro fertilisation, or IVF, never fade from your memory - whatever the outcome. But what happens when you have been lucky enough to have a child or children and you still have frozen embryos in storage you are sure you will not use. None of the choices you face are easy – to donate to another couple in need, or to science, to let them be discarded or continue to preserve them. We hear from Alison Murdoch, Professor of Reproductive Medicine at Newcastle University and two women who have come to different conclusions about what they will do. A new study of over 5000 teenagers in 46 schools has found that more than a third of teenage girls who sent nude images of themselves had been pressured into doing so. Researchers found that girls felt “shamed” when their nude images were leaked, while boys said that the leaking could lead them to gain social status. It also revealed that 34% of girls were first asked to send a nude when they were 13 or younger. Emma is joined by Soma Sara, the founder of Everyone's Invited - a safe place for survivors to share their stories anonymously - and Ruby Wootton, associate director from Revealing Reality, one of the authors of the study - which was done in collaboration with PHSE, that's the national body for personal, social, health and economic education. Being a ranger in the wild - protecting animals from poachers, leading conservation efforts and sometimes putting yourself in the line of fire - isn't often a job taken on by women. In fact, less than 11% of the global wildlife ranger workforce is female - something many in the sector want to change. Holly Budge is a British adventurer who's founded World Female Ranger Week following a successful World Female Ranger Day last year. Purnima Devi Barman is a conservationist from the state of Assam in north-eastern India who set up her own 'Stork Army' to save one species of bird. They both join Emma on the programme. The Treasury's Women in Finance Charter has published its annual review looking at gender diversity within the financial sector in the UK for 2021. Amanda Blanc is CEO of Aviva, the UK's leading insurer and leads the Women in Finance Charter and speaks to Emma about the review as well as her experiences of sexism as one of a handful of female FTSE 100 bosses.

How do you grieve what never was? What does it look like when your grief is over a dream rather than a reality? For Megan Smalley, learning to navigate the unseen grief and pain of infertility was difficult and at times, lonely. Megan experienced the whole range of emotions that came through her initial diagnosis of infertility to the arduous, sometimes discouraging path through IVF to the wrestlings that came after three miracle babies. At no point was her journey easy, but within it, God had important lessons and unending comfort to guide her through. And from that, she was able to in turn help others walking a similar path through an online community called The Infertility Sisterhood. In this episode, Megan joins Davey to talk about learning to take difficult seasons step by step, why knowing the truth of God's Word matters in the midst of it and how community can help us along the way in our pain. Whether infertility is part of your story or not, this conversation will teach you how to walk in your own hurt over the loss of a dream as well as how to help others through theirs.   Website: https://www.megansmalley.com Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/MEGANSMALLEY/ Book: Give Grace: How to Embrace the Beauty of Life's Brokenness https://www.amazon.com/dp/140021758X?psc=1&smid=A2JP70VDYUHTKB&ref_=chk_typ_imgToDp The Infertility Sisterhood: https://www.theinfertilitysisterhood.com

I share my path to resilience, of knowing acknowledging what is part of me but doesn't define me and how creating success instead of becoming a statistic was possible. I am a professional actor, artist, model, writer, and now published author. I have worked in the entertainment industry for over 25 years. My work has included international blockbuster films, TV shows, and over 2000 advertising campaigns and commercials for global brands. This is a result of choosing to embrace the unknown and choose to live. At 15 during a suicide attempt, two words spoke loudly in my mind, “Stop. Leave.” I chose to listen and ran away for the 3rd time since the age of 13. Determined to break the chain I felt was trying to hold me captive as it did so many of my family members. A little over a year later, with the help of a compassionate and giving family who took me in as a runaway, I became emancipated at the age of 16.

In this episode we look at how to connect to your partner when it appears they don't care as much about having children as you. How do you feel united when they don't seem to have any problems with your fertility situation and having children? It can feel like you are the only one struggling with the infertility experience. Get in touch: www.thefertilemind.net russell@thefertilemind.net About the Show: I help women and couples remove psychological blocks to getting pregnant. Based on my and my wife's 10 year fertility journey and the work of my clients I believe too many couples have IVF unnecessarily and that the success rate of IVF is unnecessarily low. We can see how much our mind and emotions played a part in our fertility journey and when we found a place of peace without giving up that's when the magic happened - we conceived naturally against all odds. I help me clients do the same - remove psychological blocks to getting pregnant naturally or getting the successful IVF outcome they so want. When I ask women what having a baby will give them they usually say a sense of completeness, love and purpose. It's our fear of not having these things, a fear of not being enough, worthy that tends to be behind our fear of not having a baby. These limiting beliefs have usually been around since an early age and infertility shines a spotlight on them. Many of my clients have strived for success in their life whether career or other things. That approach doesn't work for fertility. In fact it puts tension in the body which decreases their chances of success. The podcast is short dose of insight, giving women and couples new perspectives that allows them to see their fertility from the ‘inside-out'. To see help them let go of their insecure thoughts and feelings and connect to their innate wellbeing that knows they are enough and OK whatever happens. This moves having a baby from being a 'need' to to a desire. It takes the pressure of the process and their mind and body relax into it's natural flow state. Stress can impact the delicate balance of hormones required for a successful pregnancy.

Dr. Anate Brauer argue that years of training and experience as an REI do not equal OBGYN general practice upskilling, which compromises patient care and increases risk. Dr. Francisco Arredondo state that it is taking place already, the need for providers far exceeds supply, and that OBGYNs are capable (and successful), if properly trained. Dr. Brauer and Dr. Arredondo agree on where APPs can offload the burden of REIs. Griffin question whether upskilling OBGYNs to handle IVF will create another chasm in the healthcare system. Griffin push back that a solution needs to be identified, (after years of overpromising and underdelivering on the increase of graduating REIs), as they are handcuffed by fellowships and educational institutions.

FDA Approves COVID Vaccines For Kids Under Five Parents of young kids may finally breathe a big sigh of relief. On Friday the FDA granted emergency use authorization for COVID-19 vaccines for kids under the age of five. The agency approved a two-dose regimen from biotech firm Moderna and three-dose regimen from Pfizer. Small children could begin getting vaccinated as early as next week. Umair Irfan, staff writer at Vox, joins Ira to talk about COVID vaccines for little kids, the largest forest fire in New Mexico's history and a Google engineer who claims an AI chatbot is sentient and more.     What Would Happen To IVF If Roe V. Wade Is Overturned? An overturn of Roe v. Wade could have rippling effects far beyond access to abortions. Some state laws designed to ban or severely restrict abortion could also disrupt the process of fertilizing, implanting, and freezing embryos used in in vitro fertilization. That's because some of these laws include language about life beginning at conception, raising questions about in vitro fertilization's (IVF) legality. Roughly 2% of all infants in the United States are born following the use of some form of artificial reproductive technology. While that figure might seem small, it's nearly double what it was just a decade ago. Ira talks with Stephanie Boys, associate professor of social work and adjunct professor of law at Indiana University, about the legal implications of an overturn of Roe v. Wade on IVF treatment. Later, Ira also interviews Dr. Marcelle Cedars, director of the division of reproductive endocrinology at UC San Francisco and president of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, about the science behind IVF and what people often get wrong about when and how life begins.   Transcripts for each segment will be available the week after the show airs on sciencefriday.com.

 Andrea opens up about so many aspects of pregnancy and parenthood that often go undiscussed and she does so with such eloquence you could listen to her all day. She's in a same-sex relationship so as well as sharing her IVF fertility journey she discusses the often dated language and expectations that sometimes still exist in contemporary maternity care. Her anxiety fuelled persistent concerns about her babies' movements in both pregnancies and was a contributing factor to her choice to be induced both times. She also shares her experience with breast hypoplasia (insufficient breast tissue) and the stigma surrounding bottle feeding that weighed so heavily on her in postpartum.

#283 Elizabeth Day: Life Lessons on Failure, Shame and Infertility

CAUTION: This episode contains mild swearing and themes of an adult nature. A few weeks ago, I hosted my first ever Feel Better Live More LIVE show, which took place in a beautiful theatre in London. I'm really excited to share a recording of that conversation with you today. My guest was the brilliant author, journalist and podcast host, Elizabeth Day. Elizabeth hosts a podcast called ‘How to Fail' which celebrates the things that haven't gone right. She has also written two books on the subject of failure and so it seemed fitting to begin our conversation talking about this thought-provoking topic. Life is full of uncertainty but Elizabeth believes that if anything is certain in life, it is that we will all fail. But what is important, she says, is how we respond to that failure - if we allow it to be, failure can be the key to growth, strength and self-awareness. We covered so many important topics that I am sure will strike a chord with you. We spoke about the importance of authentic connection and how important being vulnerable and sharing our failures with others is. We also discussed how shame often holds us back from doing this. In fact, Elizabeth shares her own experience of this during the breakdown of her marriage and how she was ashamed of admitting her feelings to others but how when she did, she was astonished by how people around her responded in a positive way. We also talked about competitiveness and people-pleasing, and Elizabeth very candidly talks about her own journey through IVF and what it taught her. Elizabeth is a firm believer in the idea that life will generally teach us the lessons that we need to learn and we discuss how this way of thinking can be beneficial when we come across conflict and obstacles in life. This is a beautiful, deep and honest conversation - I thoroughly enjoyed speaking to Elizabeth and I know that everyone in the audience that evening felt part of something really quite special.
