A persistent and systemic issue in the US workplace has been race-based hair bias, as black women with curly hair or textured hairstyles are more likely to be perceived as unprofessional. As a result, these biases regarding the perceptions of professional appearance can impact black women's career opportunities and lead to experiencing microaggressions at work. Furthermore, it can cause black women to develop imposter syndrome and higher levels of stress and burnout. Recently, Dove and LinkedIn have paired together to launch initiatives to support more equitable and inclusive work environments. These companies are bringing attention to this workplace issue by advancing anti-hair discrimination legislation and offering training courses, as well as encouraging other companies to do the same.
