Glass door amnesia occurs in an exchange where someone first acknowledges the existence of a glass door, or any systemic barrier to a marginalized person's entry into the workplace, and then offers a list of solutions that rely on a firm belief in the meritocracy myth. This is contradictory, and it also makes it look like the person had forgotten all about the glass door, hence glass door amnesia.

An example:

"It's true that IT can be a boy's club. However, you can succeed if you stay positive, keep your skills marketable, and keep networking. After all, you're a bright woman."
