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.”

HEAR: Reverend Dr. Wendell Anthony Remind Us Why The NAACP Is More Relevant Than Ever

One of the great treasures in the city of Detroit lies in the historic annual event known as the NAACP Fight for Freedom Fund Dinner. There is no other event in the nation that brings together such diversity of community activists, business, labor, corporate, faith-based, young and old, from every vocation and station in life, in the numbers that we find here in the city of Detroit. It continues to provide a source of pride, networking, fellowship, and the building of bridges across culture and community. (WCHBNewsDetroit.com)
