The Sandwich generation – Women who find themselves sandwiched in

Guest Speaker Presentation | Lisa Birmingham, All Women’s Health and Sarah Yip, The Leaders Lounge

The sandwich generation refers to middle-aged adults burdened with the obligations of career, parenthood and carer responsibilities, “sandwiched” between growing children and aging parents or grandparents. Most often, women aged 35 plus must balance multiple commitments and responsibilities.

Going beyond their sense of identity, these multigenerational caregivers often find themselves overwhelmed and exhausted as they put the needs of others before themselves.  With the added pressures of managing one’s own career and personal issues, the individuals of the sandwich generation often feel overextended and are under significant financial and emotional stress.

Lisa Birmingham from All women’s Health will discuss the sandwich generation alongside Sarah Yip from The Leaders Lounge, who will discuss some practical tips to manage stress by identifying triggers, self-care, and asking for support.

Lisa Birmingham is a physio for women of all ages and stages and director of All Women’s Health in Paddington. She is sought after nationally as a keynote and workshop presenter and through her practice helps those suffering from bladder and bowel issues like leakage, prolapse, and pain associated with periods, endometriosis, and sex, just to name a few. She is a massive advocate for treating the whole woman and empowering them through evidence-based education.

Sarah Yip is the Group CEO of KEASE International and Leaders Lounge; and proudly leads a team of qualified consultants, facilitators & coaches who are entrusted to deliver leadership solutions for ASX200 listed companies, government departments and elite sporting groups throughout Australia. She is respected member of the Emotional Intelligence and Leadership development community. The focus of her work is uplifting leaders to thrive, not just survive, through practical and easy to implement strategies.
