Gender and Whistleblowing

Apr 21, 2022

Here’s an interesting and well-written paper on Gender and Whistleblowing. It discusses that, unfortunately, there are no statistically significant gender distinctions in the social and emotional dynamics affecting whistleblowing intentions.

However, gender differences in the perception of barriers to whistleblowing do exist.

Interestingly, it mentions a difference in gender perception between financial or social/emotional repercussions and how this impacts the chances of coming forward!

Finally, the report documents an essential relationship between employees’ awareness and the lack of proper internal networks/procedures education. Whistleblowing protection and awareness dramatically affect people’s prospects to whistleblow on observed misconduct. If you do not educate people on their protection – then do not expect to make progress in lower such incidents.
