Every day, over 50 million women are navigating menopause in the workforce. But how does it actually impact their professional lives?
Research shows that ⅗ menopausal women are afflicted by symptoms at work (Bloomberg, 2022) with ⅓ women considering leaving their job due to menopause. (Guardian, 2021) What’s more, menopause-related productivity losses cost companies up to $810 billion a year. (Bloomberg, 2022)
