A new Canadian study shows that many female business leaders still feel the effects of the glass ceiling.
Ipsos Reid polled 500 female executive across Canada on behalf of Randstad his past June and came upon some very discouraging results.
According to the study, 77 per cent of participants still felt there was a discernible difference in compensation between men and women performing the same leadership functions. Almost all participants (92 per cent) believed there is still some difference in the promotion opportunities offered to men and women.
And 69 per cent felt men were consistently given the best tasks or projects in the workplace.
