This paper assesses whether there still remains a "glass ceiling" for women in regards to sports management positions. Specifically, the paper looks at the roles of women in current management positions, the numbers of women that have achieved these positions in both the professional and intercollegiate leagues and the significance of the increases in women's positions within sports. The paper takes the position that although there has been evidence showing great strides for women in this industry, women remain under-represented, with jobs possibly even declining in intercollegiate athletics. Thus, specific guidelines should be required to ensure that equal opportunity is available for women.
