Olga Khazan, award winning writer for The Atlantic, draws upon her powerful article in the September 2017 Issue, "The Queen Bee in the Corner Office" to discuss why women bully each other in the workplace. Recognizing that the issue of women bullying women is a complex one that is often dismissed as unreal or cast as inevitable, Olga Khazan will reports findings from interviews with women across disciplines from law firms to consulting firms to academia and more that confirm evidence of negative behavior. She will consider reports on Pew and Gallop surveys and examine a number of studies including one of 60,000 managers. What she will discuss is that although there is evidence of positive mentoring and support of women by women bosses, there is a persistent theme of women undermining, sabotaging and mistreating other women in the workplace. Turning to psychologists and researchers, she will discuss a number of dynamics like " tokenism," "favoritism threat" " system justification" that may promote negative treatment of women to each other. Most importantly, she will uncover the reality that it may not be women – but the conditions of the workplace that shape the behavior of "The Queen Bee in the Corner Office".
