Twice as many female respondents to Treasury & Risk's 2012 Women in Finance survey see a glass ceiling for women in corporate America, at 80%, as do male respondents. But the 41% of men who agreed that the barrier exists is a big jump from 2011, when only 29% of male respondents agreed. Women are also more critical of programs to promote gender diversity in top positions, with just 43% giving their company’s effort an A or B grade, vs. 80% of men. But when asked whether regulators should require gender diversity on corporate boards, 60% of women and 84% of men say no.
