Hot Topic: Menopause and Your Workplace with Tamsen Fadal

How companies support their female employees that are going through perimenopause and menopause is starting to hit the headlines.

Think about it. Most women go through the menopause transition between the ages of 45 and 60. This is when women are in their professional prime.

It’s nearly impossible to be your best at work when you are dealing with hot flashes, fatigue and brain fog. This is especially true when there’s no support for what you are going through.

There are changes on the horizon, but we’ll usher in these changes much more quickly if we can become active participants in the solution.

For that reason, I’ve invited Tamsen Fadal on the Women Taking the Lead podcast.
