The day-long Stories We Tell Ourselves event takes place at the Delta Hotel from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

"This empowering event aims to unite women and non-binary folks in a day of learning and connection, focusing on emotional, financial, mental, and hormonal health," said a news release.

Dr. Zajdlik will speak about menopause, hormone replacement therapy (now called menopausal replacement therapy) and pre-menstrual dysphoric disorder.

Milhausen will share her insights on the factors that spark intimacy and desire in relationships.

Conference organizer Tracey Curtis, a financial advisor for 32 years, will also discuss the money stories driving our spending and saving decisions.

The conference will be moderated by Marva Wisdom, a senior fellow at the Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy (U of T) focusing on Equity, Inclusion and Women’s Issues.
