Women in the Workplace

Posted December 16, 2011 7:34 AM

Ongoing research suggests that in the last several decades, the number of women in responsible positions in business has increased dramatically. Yet even today the proportion declines as you move up the corporate ladder, and progress has slowed in recent years. Explanations vary from different career goals from those of men to lack of adequate role models to discrimination, both subtle and overt. Some companies and countries have resorted to establishing quotas, such as on boards of directors. Why do you think that more women don't rise to the top? Does your company's top management include women? How can the "glass ceiling finally be breached?

The preceding article is a "sneak peek" from Electronic Test Equipment, a newsletter from GlobalSpec. To stay up-to-date and informed on industry trends, products, and technologies, subscribe to Electronic Test Equipment today.

Are you sure there's a glass ceiling?

My take on it, is that women tend to have a more realistic, (and balanced), view of life, in which work is just a part of it. Family, community, etc. occupy equal or greater parts..........................which is healthy.

Men, on the other hand, will often sacrifice everything to get themselves to the top of the heap. They fool themselves into thinking that true happiness is just one promotion away...................................often turning the rest of their lives into garbage in the process.

Let them have the top spots girls.......................it's lonely up there........and then they die.

Another reason is that many women get married and start a family, this curtails their rise towards the top!

Those days so many women didn't go to work due to lower cost of living and inflation. A man called head of the family was able to support wife and children.Due inflation and men dying in wars,ethnic cleansing,genocide etc women are forced to work which encourages food outlets,gym,treadmills etc. People lazy to cook,walk to schools,malls etc make them obesse and increases medical bills. But in USA they say 23million are unemployed. Why is it?. if all males,at least one per family is given a job there will be less social unrest and crime rate too will come down as most problems are created by unemployed people and soldiers.
