Glass Ceiling Questionnaire
This survey was designed to record people's attitude towards career barriers that hinder women from reaching their full potential in the business industry. The results from this survey will be published in my research paper, "Career Barriers Against Women In The Business Industry". Anyone interested in obtaining a copy of my research paper may contact me by email Silver9649@aol.com.
