    Breaking down age barriers

    Breaking down age barriers

    Is there a 'good' age to be a woman? Statistically no - with women regularly labelled ‘too old’ or ‘too young’ for promotion or career advancement. And when single women over sixty are the most likely group to live in poverty and three-quarters of menopausal women say they feel self-conscious about symptoms at work – something has got to give. 

    Recorded live at the FW Leadership Summit 2024, in this panel discussion you'll hear from fashion designer Bianca Spender, founder & CEO Taryn Williams, NSW Health Secretary Susan Pearce AM, and menopause specialist, Dr Fatima Khan.
