I’d like to say something like: The prominence of IT has led to significant job creation while also helping migrants break the glass ceiling.

Topic is on migrants and IT. Particularly, those from a non-English speaking background, where they have difficulty progressing their careers. The advancing role of IT has led to many minorities reaching higher levels at faster rates than other specialties and industries.

Is there another manner of referring to "breaking the glass ceiling" that doesn't involve use of the term "glass ceiling"?

Or perhaps a shorthand phrase?

    It would help if you explain the actual phenomenon you want to describe. "Breaking the glass ceiling" might be used to refer to a woman being the first woman in a traditionally make-dominated field, or managing to make a salary that's slightly less disparate than the average, or making a salary that's actually commensurate, or being promoted to a role that's still traditionally male-dominated (even if she's not the first) etc. And it could apply to members of other under-represented groups, too. What, exactly, do you have in mind? – 1006a Jul 16 '18 at 15:44
  • Breaking the glass ceiling is for anyone at all reaching the top level in a company: CEO, CFO, COO, chairman, and whatever other C's they invent, like CIO. – Lambie Jul 17 '18 at 13:43
