    Topic/Title: Exploring Workgroup and Newcomer Dynamics in the Study of Workplace Harassment

    Presenter/Facilitator: Julia DiBenigno, Ph.D.  (Yale School of Management)

    Session Type: Working Paper Presentation

    Description: Dr. Julia DiBenigno will present data from an ongoing ethnographic field study that inductively examines harassment experiences in a historically male-dominated government agency that has struggled with widespread reports of sexual harassment for decades. Analysis of interviews with over 300 informants working in over 40 distinct workgroups at ten organizational units, combined with observations of these workgroups suggests the importance of considering the role that workgroup structures and newcomers play in explicating the dynamics of harassment at work. This study also seeks to identify inclusionary versus exclusionary practices in workgroups that can amplify or dampen these dynamics. By taking work-group level dynamics seriously, this study aims to shed new light on puzzles related to the prevalence and persistence of harassment at work despite widespread efforts to eradicate it.
