Understanding the Impact of Menopause on the Workplace Survey

Last Updated: January 11, 2024 

Thank you for your interest in the Menopause Workplace Survey; however, the survey is no longer accepting responses at this time.

SWHR has published results from this survey as part of the EMPACT Menopause Study. Read more!

 

Menopause is a universal life stage for women that has far-reaching economic, social, and health care implications during their working years.

With women making up 75% of the labor workforce for individuals between 25 to 54 years old in the United States according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, it is critical to discuss women’s health experiences, including the menopause transition in the context of workplace engagement.

The Society for Women’s Health Research (SWHR) conducted the Employee Perspectives and Challenges Concerning the Transition of Menopause (EMPACT Menopause) Study to better understand the workplace experiences of individuals who have entered or completed the menopause transition, as well as their coworkers and employers. 

Read the EMPACT Menopause Bulletin to see a collection of the results and findings from this survey.
