International Women's Day, annually held on March 8, is celebrated in many countries around the world and provides the perfect opportunity to address a hot topic in terms of career advancement, called ‘the glass ceiling’.
Many statistics show that women are still to a lesser extent represented in executive positions and are professionally not on par with men.
However more women today are climbing the corporate ladder and showing more ambition across leadership positions in Australia, yet for many it remains challenging to get to the top.
Companies increasingly try to play into this, but also we as women can actively cooperate and help break the glass ceiling. Women who want to hold a leadership position within an organisation need to make their ambitions and successes apparent and profile themselves clearly within the company. It is not only important to be able to see opportunities, women also need to grab them. The glass ceiling is still alive, albeit it’s gradually showing some cracks.
