Courageous Conversations: Black Hairstyles in the Workplace

Feb 23, 2021

12-1 p.m.

Continuing their celebration of Black History Month, Buchanan’s CDIO Lloyd Freeman will be hosting a courageous conversation with Professor D. Wendy Greene to examine the law and effects of racial discrimination against African descendants’ natural hair in the workplace. The two will discuss the “invisible harms” and other negative impacts caused by race-based natural hair discrimination. As one of the world’s leading experts on “grooming codes discrimination,” Professor Greene will explore landmark legal reforms on this topic, which her scholarly advocacy has shaped and are aimed at creating truly inclusive workplaces that celebrate Black hairstyles and diversity.

Buchanan is proud to partner with Drexel University’s Black Law Students Association to co-host this event.
