As the number of women entering the workforce continues to rise, there is an inherent need for leaders having the necessary management and communication skills needed to effectively run an organization. Over the years, this leadership role has been predominately male. As more women enter leadership positions, their ability to satisfactorily perform in a managerial role is brought into question. The glass ceiling effect, a common perception that women get to a point in their professional careers and a barrier forms that prevents them from achieving their full leadership potential, is the focus of this study on women in leadership. This study examines women in agricultural leadership professions and their interpretation of barriers, constraints, and motivators within their agricultural leadership profession. This study aims to provide support to disprove the stereotype of women in management and provide equal analysis of gender differences, surveying female members of the Georgia Agribusiness Council.
