An article published in Newsweek this summer reminded us of the age-old “beauty bias” and the role such bias may play in the workplace. According to the article, “[I]n the current economy, when employers have more hiring options than ever, looks… aren’t just important; they’re critical.” [Jessica Bennett, The Beauty Advantage, Newsweek, July 19, 2010.] A few months earlier, Deborah L.
