Combatting Glass Ceiling Discrimination
Glass ceiling discrimination refers to a set of artificial barriers that have been keeping women and racial minorities from obtaining the highest paid and most powerful positions in corporations. While the diversity of corporate America has certainly made significant progress over the last several decades, what we’re seeing is a stubborn persistence of women and racial minorities generally being excluded from those top, most powerful, highest paying jobs within corporate America. For example, a recent Wall Street Journal article reports that women run just 27 of the S&P 500 companies—or 5.4% of the total. The article also identifies a survey finding that “one in four Americans believes they are more likely to see time travel during their lifetime than they are to see women running half of Fortune 500 firms.” Glass ceiling discrimination remains too prevalent. Our firm is committed to working diligently with our clients to shatter the glass ceiling.
