Social issues like gender stereotypes, seeking equality, diversity have always been very complex problems, and have too many strands attached to them.

Menopausal women are the fastest-growing workforce demographic’, according to a statistical analysis report. The average age for a woman to go through menopause is 51, or broadly, the age bracket is 45-55. Ironically, it coincides with a critical career stage when women are most likely to move into top leadership positions. So, it has, by and large, become an essential concern for corporates as well that can’t be ignored anymore. Clarissa Kristjansson a Corporate Menopause Transition Expert, shared some useful pointers on WahWoman (www.wahwoman.in) related to the menopausal transition phase. Thank you, Clarissa!
