    Helping or Hurting?: Understanding Women’s Perceptions of Male Allies

    In the past decade, organizational scholars have begun to explore the role of allies inmitigating workplace discrimination toward women and members of minority groups.However, this nascent literature has, to this point, failed to consider the perspective oftargets of ally behavior. That is, we do not yet know how targets of discrimination experienceothers’ intervention or advocacy. To begin to understand these issues, we examine targetperceptions of allyship through a qualitative critical incident approach, asking womento describe experiences in which a man has effectively and ineffectively acted as an allyto them in the workplace. Our findings from surveying 100 women provide new insightsregarding who engages in ally behaviors, what behaviors these allies enact, when and wherethe behaviors take place, and why participants believed their male ally engaged in thisbehavior
