Glass ceiling in hospital industry among most difficult to crack

The odds of promotion to manager for a woman in the hospital industry is less than 8 percent, according to a study from Smart Asset, a personal finance technology company.

The study, based on 2018 data from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, found men are promoted more often than women in 90 percent of industries studied, though the hospital industry was among the worst. It ranked 49th out of 55 industries for women's odds of promotion to a leadership position.

Hospitals do outpace other industries in employing a large number of female managers. The industry ranked third in this area, but the report notes that the healthcare industry is primarily made up of female workers (78 percent). The odds of promotion are based on the number of managers compared to the number of workers in white-collar jobs for both men and women.
