Kim Schweitzer from IHS Markit shares her experience of menopause and the impact it had at work
Schweitzer believes that, although menopause is uncomfortable to talk about, we need to be more open about discussing age, the changes all women go through and what impact that can have on the workforce
“If I can just tell one woman what happened to me, so that she’s prepared, I think that would really be a good thing to do,” she says.
Schweitzer attended REBA’s Women’s Health in the Workplace breakfast in association with AXA PPP Healthcare. The event brought together academics, employers and organisations from the charity sector to discuss the importance of recognising and supporting female employees’ health.
