Women Can Be Bullies, Too: Learn to Confront It
Female Bullying in the Workplace. When we think of workplace bullies, we think first of men. But that’s only half the story. Women can be bullies too—and their bullying just looks somewhat different than it does with men. So it’s important to understand how to recognize—and stop—it. Failing to do so could cost you.
Bullying is a learned behavior that gets fine-tuned during our school years. Girls and women tend to bully using more subtle and nuanced types of tactics that are relationship-based, as opposed to male bullying, which is more outwardly aggressive. But whatever it looks like, if you have female-to-female bullying at your workplace, you have a problem on your hands.

After attending this webinar, you will know exactly what bullying is, know how and why women do it, and know what to do if you become a target. Most importantly, you’ll understand what type of bullying could constitute illegal harassment and what role management should play to prevent the behavior.
