Women hit the glass ceiling earlier than you think

A new post on LinkedIn by Rachel Schall Thomas (President at LeanIn.Org) highlights how early gender bias and discrimination can affect women in the workforce:

The article tells us women:

  • Are less likely to receive the first critical promotion to manager.
  • Are less likely to be hired into more senior positions.
  • Get less access to the people, input and opportunities that accelerate careers.
  • Are disadvantaged in many of their daily interactions.
  • Less than half as likely as men to say they see a lot of people like them in senior management.

The post is worth a read.
