Woman on woman bullying and violence is common around the world. From the playground in school to between the cubicles at work, this practice continues to prevent women from maximising their potentials.
People don’t normally talk about it because of fear of retribution, but we MUST talk about it. Not talking about sensitive issues such as bullying is one of the reasons why it remains prevalent; we are not encouraged to seek a solution for it.
Women already have a tough time in the workplace and are constantly passed over for promotions or investment because of their gender, so instead of women treating each other badly to cement their own position, they should be helping each other. But how can they do it? What is exactly the barrier that prevents us from stopping this practice?
Our guest today is Susan Blanchet, the CEO and founder of Origen Air. Having experienced bullying in the workplace, she is willing to discuss the experience with us.
