According to a recent study in the Journal of Applied Psychology, women experience more rudeness and incivility from other women in the workplace than they do from men.
Ducci Associates CEO and founder Jackie Ducci said when she sees different companies make their selections, it's women who are most critical of other women whether it be about their clothing or what they said.
"Like we don't evolve beyond high school, some of us, and that's what it feels like to me. There's just this sort of catty undertone. And, it's not across the board, but it is prevalent in a lot of different companies," said Ducci.
She said male dominated executive teams and industries usually want more diversity and are more supportive of having a female employee.
Ducci said when interviewing with another women, be you, but be savvy, not controversial.
"Just be aware that you never know the environment that you're walking into. If it is another woman who's interviewing you, you don't know if they're going to be the supportive type or the critical type," said Ducci.
She said the cattiness of women towards each other is quite a phenomenon.
