The Beryl Radin Award

Justine E. Tinkler of the University of Georgia and Jun Zhao of Georgia State University are the recipients of the 2021 Beryl Radin Award for their article, “The Sexual Harassment of Federal Employees: Gender, Leadership Status, and Organizational Tolerance for Abuses of Power.”

The awards committee noted that this article makes a novel and significant contribution to our understanding of how employees’ workplace power and their organizational efforts to mitigate abuses of power affect their vulnerability to sexual harassment. The authors develop a compelling argument that women leaders face different risks depending on their rank. Through their analyses of the most comprehensive and up-to-date national data of federal employees on workplace sexual harassment, the authors find that sexual harassment is a dominance strategy used to undermine women in power, and that workplace climates that are effective at mitigating abuses of power reduce the likelihood of experiencing sexual harassment.
