Break the Glass Ceiling!
A downloadable game
Hey, girl! Welcome to your very first day at Locker Room Talk Inc. We’re so jazzed to have you here! We consider ourselves to be an incredibly forward-thinking company with a focus on gender equality. We would love it if more women could step up, lean in and climb that corporate ladder! Unfortunately, it seems like that is easier said than done...
Break the Glass Ceiling is a short game for 2 to 6 players. The player with the most workplace experience goes first. Players will roll a d6 and move the designated number of spaces up the corporate ladder. However, if a player lands on a broken rung of the ladder, they must roll an XX dice and perform the corresponding action.
If a player lands on a broken rung after having just performed an action, they must roll another XX dice and perform the additional action as well. A player’s turn is only over when they land on a safe rung.
As the players get higher on the ladder, there will be a larger number of broken rungs. It may get frustrating, but it’s not impossible. With a lot of hard work, you can get to the top! The first player to reach the top of the ladder wins the game.
Break the Glass Ceiling can be used as a discussion starter for issues around the concept of glass ceiling and gender pay gap. To learn more about these issues, visit:
