glass ceiling Smashing the Glass Ceiling!
Not all forms of discrimination are easy to identify. Sometimes, through no fault of your own, your career progress can hit an invisible barrier - the insidious "glass ceiling."

It's a phenomenon that goes beyond gender and ethnicity, and can be the result of personal or organizational bias. Our article, Breaking the Glass Ceiling, explores strategies for dismantling this damaging obstacle.

You can learn more about the impact of discrimination, and how to overcome it, with our articles, Avoiding Unconscious Bias at Work and Managing Mutual Acceptance in Your Team.
