REPLAY: No country for old women: Gendered access to better ageing

Nov 17, 2021 | 4:10 PM - 4:50 PM




For many women in business, the point at which they could be promoted to a management role (usually between 45 and 55) coincides with the menopause transition, which can last for up to 8 years. The severity of the symptoms – worsened by the fact that women, at that age, are often expected to perform unpaid care work for their families and neglect themselves as a result – means that many of them drop out of the workforce and dedicate their lives to roles they haven’t chosen. How can businesses and governments adapt policies to better support women at mid-life, and address implicit biases towards ageing women? How could these changes create new conditions for employee productivity?
