Women's Career Advancement Experiences in Information Technology
BeschreibungSince the term 'glass ceiling' was first noted in the 1980's, women have made great progress in terms of leadership equality with men in the workplace. Despite this, women who make up a majority of the workforce are still underrepresented by number in the upper echelons of organizations. The information gathered during the course of this study was used to understand if the glass ceiling exists for women in IT and explore their promotion experiences as information technology (IT) professionals in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania organizations. In short, the overall theme of the experiences of the 15 women was that promotion experiences for women employed in IT in Pittsburgh organizations are "A Continuous Challenge" - culturally, socially, and personally. Readers interested in the fields of information systems, communications, phenomenology, women's studies, and career advancement would find value in the information gathered and presented.
