Grace Molloy is the CEO of Menopause Friendly Australia 

Menopause Friendly Australia is a circuit-breaker for companies experiencing the loss of productivity, gender diversity and psychosocial safety associated by the surge in the number of menopausal people in the workplace.

Seeing Australian businesses lose experienced leaders early due to menopause symptoms, Grace made it her mission to ensure employers have access to the support they need to help women thrive through this stage of life.

A commercial health professional, Registered Nurse, ex-Big4 accountant, Grace

has worked alongside Australia’s pre-eminent medical researchers and global pharmaceutical and biotechnology innovators to advance medical breakthroughs through clinical trials. 

Grace is a member of the Australasian Menopause Society and the International Menopause Society and recently contributed to the first ever Menopause Roundtable in parliament Canberra. 

An advocate for women, Grace helped senior executive women secure board roles through the first Director Pipeline Project at the Australian Institute of Company Directors and consulted to the Victorian Human Rights Commission when they formed a gender policy for golf. She was the youngest woman appointed to a golf body when at 25 she became a director and Vice President of Women’s Golf WA. Advocating for equity in the sport, she sat on the amalgamation committee when the WA women’s and men’s golf associations merged to form Golf WA. She was soon after invited by Golf Australia to contribute to the reshaping of the National Handicapping System. 

She brings 15+ years experience in commercial partnerships across industries including professional services, NFP, finance, sport and accounting. After completing a Masters of nursing and becoming a registered nurse, she turned her attention to medical research at Linear Clinical Research where her most recent role was Head of Strategy and Performance. After being invited to an internship with Brandon Capital, Grace became determined to contribute to the gap in evidence-based solutions for women’s health and menopause. She believes in a world where women can thrive at work through all ages and stages of life.
