Starting in the late 1970s, women began to enter the workforce in very large numbers. However, by the mid-1980s, most of these women had not advanced to the upper levels in corporate America. The term “glass ceiling” began to be used in referring to these well-qualified women that found themselves unable to advance to the next level. These women could see themselves as performing very successfully at the next level – the promotions never came – thus the “glass ceiling.”
Decades have passed, unfortunately, the “glass ceiling” still exists and not only for women but also for minorities. Many books and articles have been written providing tips and strategies for breaking the glassing ceiling. However, many women and minorities will tell you that the tips and strategies often have little impact because the structure of corporations in America causes the glass ceiling. Moreover, most women will share that they must work twice as hard as their male coworkers and minorities face the same challenges.
