Incivility at Work: “Queen Bee Syndrome”

Local News

A new survey from the University of Arizona shows more women are being cruel to one another at work.

Researchers asked 1400 men and women with full time jobs if they felt disrespected during their previous month of work.

Their findings helped them determine women are less likely to get along and females with assertive and dominant personalities are more likely to be targeted.

Experts call it “Queen bee syndrome.”

It reportedly makes women target other women in the work place, in an attempt to climb the ladder.

In Virginia At Work, Lynda McNutt Foster discussed the issues that lead to “Queen bee syndrome” and  how women can change the culture.
