Understanding Your Mean Female Coworkers and Bosses
In this episode, our co-hosts discuss an article that was published in the Atlantic entitled "Why Do Women Bully Each Other At Work" by Olga Khazan. The phenomenon of mean female coworkers and supervisors is unfortunately experienced by many, and we find out that there are some very important reasons behind it, ones that are crucial for all of us working in STEM to be aware of and understand.
