Are women more hostile to each other at the workplace? Do women bully and harass other women more at the workplace than men? Do men and women take different approaches or tactics when it comes to bullying?
This webinar is on the very interesting topic of bullying of female employees by other female employees. Women’s bullying is usually subtler and more covert than the one done by men. This makes it difficult to identify and recognize easily. Managers who refuse to see this give bullying women the freedom to continue with this habit undetected.
It is true that women bully other women at the workplace quite differently from men. Whatever the differences, the results of female bullying are there to see:
- Bullied female employees take off from work more frequently
- They perform poorly
- Their morale and motivation are usually low
- Their trust in management erodes
- The chances of their quitting their jobs and seeking other employment opportunities are higher.
Understanding of female harassment from all perspectives
At this webinar, Dr. Strauss will take up these and other important related questions relating to female bulling at the workplace from other female employees. She will address core questions pertaining to the topic, which include the following:
- Are women really each other’s worse enemy or is it just a myth and a stereotype?
- What does research show about women’s hostility to other women, sometimes called bullying in the workplace?
- Is female to female bullying an issue that deserves attention apart from general workplace bullying?
- Do we have different expectations of women’s behavior at work than we do of men’s behavior?
- Do we have a responsibility, as women, to support other women at work?
Some of the aspects that Dr. Strauss will examine in helping participants arrive at an understanding of these critical questions include theories as to whether women are more hostile to each other than to men, the role sexism has in building and reinforcing our stereotypes relating to perceptions of women and men’s bullying, the connection between bullying and harassment, the impact bullying has on witnesses, tort laws on this subject, and tokenism as a means to address this often grave issue.
Dr. Strauss will cover the following areas at this webinar, which is of high value to Human Resources Generalists, Managers, Directors, Women Owners, HR Managers, Controllers, Supervisors, Office Managers, Accounts Managers, or anyone in Management at all levels:
- To describe women’s ways of bullying
- To discuss the theoretical causes and contributing factors of women’s bullying
- To determine if bullying could be illegal harassment
- To explore the impact of women bullying their colleagues
- To identify management’s role in the prevention and intervention of women’s bullying
- To list the steps to take if targeted by a bully.
