How to Create More than Just a Crack in the Glass Ceiling – Management Today

Posted by: Alex Linley, as part of Capp’s Female Leaders Month (June 2012)


Fresh from celebrating Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee, we continue also to celebrate Female Leaders Month at Capp.


Do you find yourself continuously apologising, playing mum or not asking for that promotion? These are three common mistakes women make in the workplace, says Nicky Garcea in Management Today


“The glass ceiling has a hairline crack, but it is not yet broken. Women remain underrepresented at senior levels and latest research shows us that just 14% of FTSE 100 directorships and 22 percent of senior management positions were held by women. This, despite the fact that in the last year alone, female enterprise contributed over £130bn to our economy.

There are many reasons why female leaders are less represented in businesses, but research points chiefly at organisational bias and actually, perhaps surprisingly, women holding themselves back.

You don’t have to be superwomen to make it to the top, so what are the key challenges facing women?…”
