There is no doubt that men and women have equal intellectual capacities, and so should be equally successful in business and equally represented in senior management and leadership positions. Despite this there are relatively few women in senior management positions and fewer still on the boards of directors. This phenomenon is often referred to as the Glass Ceiling. For example a report by the Irish Business and Employers’ Confederation (IBEC), published in March 2002, concludes that the presence of a ‘glass ceiling’ means that there is a low level of female representation in senior management positions in Ireland. This ‘glass ceiling’, it is argued, is created by a number of structural and attitudinal barriers.
