Bullying is a learned behavior that gets fine-tuned during our school years. While men’s way of bullying are more aggressive, girls and women tend to bully using more subtle nuanced types of tactics that are relationship-based. 

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? Perhaps if women are bullying other women they need to be told to “put on your big girl panties” and deal with it, as the saying goes. 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 by expert speaker Susan Strauss, discusses the phenomenon – or lack thereof- of women’s hostility to other women, outlines what one should do if bullied, and discusses management’s role in the prevention and intervention of the behavior. 

Session Highlights: 

  • The subtler way of bullying used by women 

  • Theoretical causes and contributing factors of women’s bullying 

  • Can women to women bullying be tagged as illegal harassment? 

  • The impact of women bullying their colleagues 

  • Identifying management’s role in the prevention and intervention of women’s bullying 

  • The steps to take if targeted by a bully 

  • Are women more hostile to each other than to men? 

  • Sexism and stereotypes in our perceptions of women and men’s bullying 

  • The nexus of bullying and harassment 

  • Impact of bullying on witnesses 

  • Tort Laws 

  • Tokenism 

Why You Should Attend: 

Some do not believe there is a difference in the ways men and women bully, and if there is, they say, “what’s the big deal?” They may be right. The research suggests, however, that the two genders do tend to bully using some different tactics. Because women’s ways of bullying are generally subtler, 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. 

Who Should Attend: 

  • Anyone in management at all levels 

  • Human resources generalists 

  • HR managers 

  • HR directors

  • VP of HR
  • All HR Directors, Managers, and Generalists
  • Supervisors
  • Managers
  • Director of Risk Management
