NDS’s superannuation partner HESTA is holding a webinar for employers to show how women can thrive in their careers and life during menopause.
Menopause is a natural stage of women’s lives that usually occurs between 45 and 55 years of age, lasting for up to ten years. For some, the symptoms of menopause can be extremely debilitating, affecting their careers and experiences of work.
Where supports are not adequate, women may revert to part-time work, forgo leadership opportunities or retire early. This can result in lost wages and superannuation contributions, which could lead to financial insecurity in retirement.
