Overview

What does it take for African-American women to rise to senior management positions in corporate America? This book is a case study examining the lives of several African-American women from different corporate environments and the degree of influence various factors had on their rise to senior management compared to what the research says. Although significant progress has been made with women breaking glass ceiling barriers there still continues to be a disproportionate number of African-American women in senior management when compared to other minorities. Studies suggest that various factors such as, mentors, education,and professional networks are key to moving up in corporate America. You have done everything recommended but still can't break through. You're stuck in middle management. So what does all this mean? Is there a certain combination that is more successful than another? What do "I" have to do to advance in corporate American? Which way is really up?
