Prevention and Intervention of Female to Female Bullying at Workplace

Are women really each other’s worst enemy or is it just a myth and a stereotype? What does the research show about women’s hostility to other women, sometimes called bullying, in the workplace? Bullying is a learned behavior that gets fine-tuned during our school years. Girls and women tend to bully using more subtle nuanced tactics that are relationship-based.  On the other hand, men tend to bully in more aggressive ways.

Some people do not believe that there is a difference in the ways men and women bully, and if there is, it is no big deal to them. These people may be right. The research suggests, however, that the two genders tend to bully using different tactics. Since women bully in generally more subtle ways, managers may not recognize it as bullying and ignore the behavior, thereby, giving tacit approval for it to continue. This leads to poor morale, lack of trust in management, poor performance, absenteeism and turnover. Perhaps, if women are bullying other women they need to be told to deal with their issues in more professional ways.

Employers and employees must consider the following questions: Is female to female bullying an issue that deserves attention apart from general workplace bullying? Is discussing women’s hostility to women feeding into the stereotype of women’s “nasty” behavior at work? Do we have different expectations of women’s behavior at work than we do of men’s behavior? If so, could that be playing a role in the perception that women bully women? Do we have a responsibility, as women, to support our “sisters” at work?

Join this session with expert speaker Dr. Susan Strauss, where she will discuss the phenomenon—or lack thereof—of women’s hostility to other women. She will outline what one should do if bullied, and discuss management’s role in the prevention and intervention of the behavior.
