Burgard says women’s nighttime caregiving, lack of sleep may affect career at critical period
Sarah Burgard discusses the potential career ramifications of sleep disparities between men and women. She finds that women in the prime childbearing years, which are also important career-building years, are most affected by the disparity. “That’s when the promotions are happening, when some really important salary building stuff is happening. That’s going to affect your salary trajectory for the rest of your life,” she says.
