How career growth, impacts women’s mental health

How career growth impacts women’s mental health

This International Women’s Day, which falls on March 8, we explore why female managers end up being more stressed than their male counterparts

Explaining why that is the case, Samriti Makkar Midha (she/her), Psychologist (Clinical) & Psychotherapist, Co-founder & Partner, POSHequili says, “Research hasn’t proven that women are more emotional. Women express their emotions more as it’s a byproduct of how society reacts to men and women’s emotional expression. Women are more attuned to listening to others and using a lot of emotional vocabulary. This means that women are likely to express more stress as they are compassionate and available to others. As a result, they might not be able to get their work done on time.”
