Women throughout history have never been free and liberated as today, both in Western societies and Serbia, where the actual reality that a woman is entitled to all the rights that are regulated by national legislation, taking into account the principle of gender equality. The position of women in the labor market is one of the key aspects of gender equality in the society. However, by the time they follow the invisible barriers that prevent women from achieving leading positions in corporate leadership, which is now called the "glass ceiling." The aim of the research is to describe and analyze the current situation of women managers and discover the causes and factors limiting their professional recognition. The research results make it possible to describe and see two models of the behavior women managers in the current situation in Serbian economy, which is a basic criterion for the dominance of the identified factors: factors barriers and support factors to the advancement of women in professional careers.
