Are We Living in the Pink Ghetto?

Posted September 3, 2012 by Marcy Twete in On the Ladder
On this Labor Day,we’re highlighting what has come to be known as the “pink ghetto.” It’s a trend in business that unfortunately means that though women are making up a majority of the workforce, we’re not making it past mid-level staff roles and into leadership. Some people believe we’re “on the cusp” of leaders, and others contend that this pattern will continue unless things change in the business world.

This Labor Day, have a dialogue for you. Are you ready to ascend to leadership? How will you get there? Are we really stuck in this kind of a “pink ghetto”?
