Let's talk about gender-based discrimination in the workplace

Did you know these terms? They describe different discriminatory situations related to employment against women.

Sticky floor

Discriminatory employment pattern that keeps workers, mainly women, in the lower ranks of the job scale, with low mobility and invisible barriers to career advancement.

Glass ceiling

Artificial impediments and invisible barriers that militate against women’s access to top decision-making and managerial positions in an organization, whether public or private and in whatever domain.

Broken ladder

It affects women who have completed their secondary education and receive a middle-level family income. Even though they have joined the job market, these workers lack the protection networks that would allow them to achieve significant economic empowerment or help them avoid falling onto the "sticky floors."
