Too many people are stuck behind invisible barriers that stop them from achieving their true potential. Our major educational systems do not address this barrier. They do not teach life skills, job skills, or often even the soft skills necessary for specialist roles. The Glass Ceiling Project wants to help people smash those barriers.

The effect of this lack of basic skills ripples out and is at the heart of many corporate difficulties. Financial regulators bemoan the lack of adequate communication between parties as a clear problem in relation to consumer decision-making, outcomes and performance.
The most successful organisations in the world – most notably Apple and Google – have identified this gap and put extensive workplace programmes into place to teach soft skills to their employees. These programmes recognise that for employees to perform at their best, the training programmes must go beyond the workplace in which their employees work and teach life skills as well. These initiatives contribute directly to increased employee productiveness, retention and satisfaction.
This is where The Glass Ceiling Project comes in.
