Glass Ceiling

[ɡlæs | ˈsilɪŋ]

Glass Ceiling is a term used to describe the barrier that women have from being promoted to managerial or in other words, senior position within an organization.

The reason why perhaps a lot of women struggle with being promoted, is perhaps due to the fact that the organisation takes into consideration the fact that the employee will need adjustments to their employment. This equality cap varies from country to country; in some countries, women are not encouraged and supported to progress within the organization.
