Breaking the Glass Ceiling and Falling off the Glass Cliff
I found myself nodding in agreement with every sentence as I read this article on diversity in the workplace. The article at first seems negative (listing bullets on "what not to do" rather than "what to do"), but within the sarcastic wrapping there are plenty of positive suggestions to be found. I showed it to a colleague of mine and together we identified workplace initiatives or situations that fit every single "what not to do" bullet in the article. I saw that it was adapted from a book and I'm thinking I should buy a pallet of the books and give it out like candy to every high-level executive across the entire country.
