America’s Competitive Secret

Oxford University Press

In the advent of how women cause discomfort to their male coworkers, all professional women are aware of the fact that being female can bring both advantages and disadvantages to the work environment. Although some women express positive feedback regarding how they are being treated in their respective work environments, there are, nonetheless, still some cases wherein professional women may either feel neutral, or experience underutilization. By and large, women who harbor negative feelings towards how they are being treated in their workplaces tend to react in predictable ways: denial, collusion, acceptance, challenge, flight, and resorting to legal action. This chapter asserts that examining these reactions can be very useful to how executives may address the problem of female underutilization.

Keywords:   denial, collusion, acceptance, challenge, flight, legal action, female underutilization
