With over 50 million American women currently going through menopause, who will spend at least one-third of their working lives in menopause, it’s a problem we can’t afford to sweep under the rug.
Many companies talk a good game about diversity and inclusion. Yet, the challenges faced by menopause women at work from brain fog, fatigue, headaches, hot flashes, drowsiness reduced self-confidence are often overlooked.
Take a look at women between 40 to 64 in your organization. They are easily the most valuable players in any team. They have the knowledge, experience, and skillset to lead. They know how to navigate tricky situations. They have a plan when things don’t go as planned. They are with you for the long term.
Just imagine you can help them become more productive and comfortable by making your working environment menopause friendly and harness the value they bring to the table.
