Abstract Text In this paper, Gloor, Okimoto, and Li examine how bystanders react to incivility toward women at work in two studies. They first surveyed 1,896 scholars to examine the cross-lagged relationship between identification (gender and organizational identification) and their subsequent perceptions that incivility toward women is attributable to gender discrimination. While they observed no effect of gender identification, they found a negative effect of organizational identification, such that those who identify with their employer were less likely to attribute the incivility to gender discrimination. Then, they ran an experiment to better assess the possibility that gender discrimination may be “missed”. From this experiment they found that, after observing incivility toward a woman, participants with higher organizational identification were less likely to perceive the incivility as discrimination and less likely to act in response to such incivility. Their research adds to the selective incivility and the broader workplace mistreatment literatures by focusing on a bystander perspective and has implications for how coworkers (especially bystanders of incivility) can affect inclusive workplaces.
