Glass Ceiling or Sticky Floor?

The web continues to be abuzz with analysis of the issues associated with women in the workplace. We have recently posted on the subject here.

Now a column by Amy Joyce at the Washinton Post argues that since we have done quite alot to break the glass ceilings of the corporate world, perhaps we need to turn our concentration to the "sticky floor." By "sticky floor" she means the "unconscious behaviors that keep them in middle management rather than the executive suite."The article cites to consultant Rebecca Shambaugh, who argues that 50 percent or more of the things holding women back are behavioral traits and "assumptions about themselves" rather than intentional or institutional discrimination in the workplace.

It is an interesting article.CategoriesHRPoliciesSexualHarassment
