What Are the "Glass Ceiling" Barriers Effects on Women Career Progress in Jordan?
- Excimirey Al-Manasra
The purpose of this paper is to explore the impact of the glass ceiling barriers represented by the organizational
practices and the existence of male culture, and the impact of family, social commitments on women career
progress in Jordan.
A sample of – working mid-level women managers in Jordan are selected to answer a questionnaire on glass
ceiling barriers and family and social commitments. The results showed that the impact of the glass ceiling is
more significant than the impact of family and social commitments on women career progress in Jordan.
Glass ceiling term is a new concept for the Jordanian audience, because there is no real interests to explore this
kind of issues, for that reason we can not find previous researches that explore the glass ceiling as a phenomenon
that affects the women career progress in Jordan.
