BREAKING BARRIERS: UNVEILING THE GLASS CEILING’S IMPACT ON WOMEN IN THE WORKPLACE
Abstract
The concept of the “glass ceiling” has become a widely recognized metaphor representing the barriers hindering women’s advancement in various professions. Originating from a phrase coined by the Wall Street Journal in 1986, the term encapsulates the challenges faced by women and minorities in breaking through invisible barriers to higher positions in the workforce, irrespective of their qualifications or accomplishments. This study aims to investigate the existence of the Glass Ceiling phenomenon in workplaces. Primary and secondary data were utilized for this research, with a focus on gathering primary data through a structured questionnaire administered to 50 working women. The data collected were analysed using SPSS software, incorporating Factor Analysis to present and interpret the findings. The study also includes data collected from IBM Noida, India, adding a specific regional context to the broader examination of the Glass Ceiling effect.
