What is glass ceiling discrimination?

 

 

Glass ceiling discrimination is a form of promotion discrimination. What it refers to is 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.
