It's Not The Glass Ceiling, It's the Sticky Floor

Thursday, May 17, 2007
6:30 - 8:00 PM

International market, human capital and societal trends all indicate that now is the time for women to fill the leadership ranks in corporate America.

But do today's statistics show that women are well represented at the senior level? With women currently holding only 14.5% percent of the executive positions in F500 companies ...the answer is NO.

Rebecca Shambaugh, President and CEO of SHAMBAUGH and Founder of WILL, will present a provocative and engaging discussion regarding the "glass ceiling", also known as the organizational and cultural obstacles that women face in the workplace, as well as the "sticky floors", which are women's own limiting behaviors and beliefs that can hold us back from reaching our career aspirations.

Learn about seven key behavioral traits that can become "sticky floors" and learn ways to break free of them.

Rebecca is author of an upcoming book, It’s Not The Glass Ceiling, It’s The Sticky Floor. Her book is flagged as a potential best seller by its publisher, McGraw Hill. This book will illustrate her unconventional approach towards women in leadership. It brings to life her organization’s leadership programs for women and the thousands of speaking engagements she's given around the nation for the past 15 years, which focus on how women can get unstuck, empowered, move up, and prosper in their career.
