Glass Ceiling

What is Glass Ceiling ?

‘Glass Ceiling’ refers to the metaphorical invisible ceiling that prevents minorities and women from attaining senior level positions in companies. This phrase was initially used to refer to the limitations imposed on women in the 1980s which prevented them from achieving leadership positions in organizations. However, it was also extended to the racial minorities who were experiencing the same issues.

This issue is relevant even today and there are multiple surveys confirming the same. The issue is all the more significant today considering the fact that it exists even after making everyone aware about women’s issues with women rights movements.

The solution to this issue is to simply start by recruiting a diverse group of people. It will help in making the minorities and women feel engaged with the company and a diverse group of people coming from different backgrounds will be more instrumental in the success of the company than a non-diverse group.
