Is there still a glass ceiling in the workplace for women?
Just under half of the women asked in the research for the Institute of Leadership and Management supported the idea of having quotas for female executives, compared to nearly a quarter of the men asked.
Penny de Valk, the Institute's chief executive, said that although quotas may be seen as the quickest solution they do not necessarily drive a commitment to the more fundamental changes required.
Are quotas a good idea? What would be the best way to increase the number of women on company boards? Should gender come into employment decisions? What are your experiences in the workplace?
