“The 'glass ceiling'—a term introduced more than 40 years ago—refers to an invisible, systemic barrier that prevents women from rising to senior leadership. But contrary to popular belief, the glass ceiling is not the biggest obstacle to women's progression. It is actually at the first step up
to manager—or the 'broken rung'.”
