Issued in March 1995, this document, The Environmental Scan, presents the findings of the Federal Glass Ceiling Commission resulting from research by its consortium of consultants, commission hearings, studies, interviews, focus groups, and panel discussions - as well as its review of other public and private research. Title II of the Civil Rights Act of 1991 created the 21-member, bipartisan Federal Glass Ceiling Commission. The Commission’s mandate was to study the barriers to the advancement of minorities and women within corporate hierarchies (the problem known as the glass ceiling), to issue a report on its findings and conclusions, and to make recommendations on ways to dismantle the glass ceiling.
