The glass ceiling exists, and it’s really, really thick.
Counting all the executives of S.&P. 1500 firms, there are less total women than there are total men named John, Robert, William or James, according to the New York Times’ Upshot Blog. It’s about a 4:1 ratio. According to Census Bureau data, the real-world ratio of Jims-Bobs-Jacks-Bills to women is 0.12:1.
Furthermore, only 1 in every 25 of these large firms is run by a female CEO.
Indeed, there is wide gender disparity even when comparing men named James, Robert, John or William to women in the world of politics and academics, according to the blog.
Considering the disappointing statistics, it’s clear companies haven’t been taking a cue from Kevin O’Leary.
