An Unbreakable Glass Ceiling?


In Business This Week

AN UNBREAKABLE GLASS CEILING?

AS PRESIDENT CLINTON BACKS away from affirmative action, he will have some explaining to do to members of his Administration. The Glass Ceiling Commission, chaired by Labor Secretary Robert Reich, voted on Mar. 8 to adopt a report documenting widespread limits on career advancement for minorities and women. Its research shows that 95% of senior-level managers in the largest American companies are men--and 97% of those male managers are white. The bipartisan panel won't make any proposals to crack the glass ceiling until November, but its draft report urges strong enforcement of federal affirmative-action rules.EDITED BY KEITH H.
