An evening with Karen Arthur: Celebrating life after 50

Monday 18 October 2021

We are absolutely delighted to host an intimate & interactive evening with the inimitable Karen Arthur to mark World Menopause Day and to celebrate Black History Month 2021 at LSBU!


Karen’s journey has led her in many directions. After many years as a teacher, Karen is now a fashion creative, stylist, model, content creator, private sewing tutor, menopause advocate & activist and inspirational public speaker. With this host of titles under her figurative – yet no doubt fashionable – belt, Karen is using her unique voice to share her own experiences of the menopause & mental health to support & empower women to take up their space, own their value & challenge the outdated stereotypes for life after 50. And she uncompromisingly states that her journey is far from over as she approaches 60 next year….

Menopause Whilst Black

Karen presents and produces her podcast ‘Menopause whilst Black’ – a podcast that centres around Black British women’s experiences with menopause in a bid to diversify this topic. Following on from the launch of LSBU’s menopause policy & a range of events exploring some of the many themes that arise around the menopause, Karen’s work aligns perfectly with our commitment to creating & encouraging work spaces that are understanding, aware & supportive.

Wear Your Happy

Through her love of fashion & her bold creative streak, Karen is passionate about dressing for the way you feel & exploring the links between fashion & wellbeing. This has inspired ‘Wear Your Happy‘, or #wearyourhappy on social media, whereby Karen emboldens you to use clothing & accessories to ‘stand up, stand out and feel wonderful’. We invite you to do this during this event… There’s a slot in the programme to share your #wearyourhappy story, moment, outfit or accessories with other attendees if y
