GlassCeiling.com is a website for career people and their allies who see “through” the ceiling. We actively support you, your dreams and efforts by providing…

Interviews…highlighting diverse career experiences and perspectives

Information…sharing articles and advice on current issues

Inspiration…celebrating people, thoughts, & solutions that motivate

There is a disproportionately small number of women in business leadership positions. But, this fact is not permanent.
We view obstacles as opportunities for change.

Industries and companies shift, grow, or shrink everyday. We understand that navigating a career is never easy. The professional experiences and advice of others can inform and inspire your own path at every careers stage.

Glass Ceiling.com is an ally for people who are in the beginning, middle, or executive stages of their career. We know the ceiling cannot be broken by one person or group. This is a cross-generational movement that requires ALL of us. Therefore we advocate for a fair and equitable workplace for all.

Research shows women have far less access to career development programs than men.

In partnership with Entertain2Education we translate important ethical issues into professional development and continuing education seminars for all. Our format is unlike any other. Live actors perform an original play that brings “elements of the issue and potential solutions” to life in compelling and sometime humorous ways.
