Removing the glass ceiling from the United States

The glass ceiling , in terms of job positions, can be defined as an intangible barrier within a hierarchy that prevents women and minorities from being promoted to upper-level positions. [1] Removing the glass ceiling is the act of taking away this invisible barrier for women and minorities to move up to upper-level positions. In the US, only 5% of women are running a Fortune 500 company which is equivalent to twenty-five companies. In the US, feminists will use the term minorities, minorities, and minorities.

Background

In the realms of finance, the glass ceiling can be seen through trends, new CEOs, and stock performance. CEOs, one can find a steady increase in female CEOs from 1992 to 2004. In 2002, this increased tapered off a little bit. For male CEOs, they have grown from 1992 to 1999, and since then male CEOs have decreased. An interesting observation from this chart will reveal that when the female increase in CEOs tapered starting in 2002, the male CEOs continued to decline. This article was published in the United States Economic State in the Year 2002. Coincidentally, there was a recession in the US in 2002 through 2003.

When a new CEO is in the market, the CEO is going down, but the amount is going to be affected by what is the new CEO is among other factors. On average, when will the CEO take over the role of CEO? The stock will drop. 5% while a female becomes a CEO the stock will drop 5.7%. There is no explanation for this difference, but it can be assumed that gender does play a role in this large average difference.

In the long run of a publicly traded company, there is no significant difference in excess between male and female companies. [2]
