The term ‘glass ceiling’ first appeared in 1978 during a panel discussion about women’s aspirations from Marilyn Loden, an American writer and management consultant.

As women, we often encounter many different levels of glass ceilings during the span of our careers.  Breaking these glass ceilings takes hard work, strategy and fearlessness, but successfully doing so can result in higher pay, a larger sphere of influence, and increased power to affect change in our workplace.

We have invited the women on this panel who have found their own way to successfully crack or break glass ceilings during their careers and who can share insights on how they overcome barriers to achieving high-paying careers, get the promotions and leadership positions they deserve and help their organizations support them in their pursuit for equal pay and freedom from workplace discrimination.
