Barriers to the careers of
women in the Australian finance industry
Glass Ceilings and Sticky Floors confirms the findings of previous studies: that women are concentrated in part-time, lower-grade work with limited opportunities for training and advancement. The report identifies the barriers to equality and proposes recommendations for change, including the introduction of career and gender awareness programs, the introduction of development plans for managerial and non-managerial women employees, the provision of appropriate training, and an examination of 'lateral' as well as conventional 'vertical' career paths.
