ABSTRACT
The article reports on a study which found that the glass cliff phenomenon applies not only to women in senior positions in Great Britain but other minority groups too. Conducted by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, the study revealed that disabled people, returning parents, older staff and sexual minorities may find themselves in similar glass cliff positions. These are leadership roles that are associated with a greater risk of failure or criticism.
