Study Finds Bias Against Black Women’s Hair May Affect The Hiring Process

A new study has revealed that Black women with natural hairstyles, such as Afros, braids or twists, are often perceived as less professional than Black women with straightened hair.

Research conducted at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business, offers evidence that discrimination against natural Black hairstyles is prevalent in the workplace and perpetuates race discrimination.

Ashleigh Shelby Rosette, a management professor and a senior associate dean at Duke said, “The impact of a woman’s hairstyle may seem minute, but for Black women, it’s a serious consideration and may contribute to the lack of representation for Blacks in some organizational settings.”
