    in layers

    The following sentences are discussing how company reconstructing in Europe during the recession affected women's progress in the workplace( Does this make sense?) . But I am not sure what the underlined parts mean exactly. Can you help me?

    In Europe a recent feature of corporate life in the recession has been the delayring of management stuctures. This has halted progress for women in as much as de-layering has taken place either where women are working or in layers they aspire to.

    Re: in layers

    The managerial hierarchy no longer has the positions that women were holding or the ones they were hoping to get, making it harder for them to reach the top.
