Glass ceiling still in place for women

ICAS survey finds it’s still very much a macho world

Women are still struggling to make their mark in the profession, a new survey
commissioned by The Institute of Chartered
Accountants of Scotland
has found.
It found that firms still promote ‘macho’ working practices, including long
hours, while informal male networks, are hampering the efforts of female
accountants striving to become partners.

The report, Women of ICAS Reaching the Top: The Demise of the Glass
Ceiling
found that in 2006, just 13% of ICAS partners in UK practice were
women.

The research gathered data from 623 female members in the UK and drew on
interviews with male and female partners in the
Big Four and large
firms in Scotland.
