North Carolina-based photographer Endia Beal wanted to show what corporate America would look like with more African American women. Her "Am I What You're Looking For?" photo series features young women of color wearing their "ideal" business professional attire in front of an office backdrop for a mock interview.
"Many of the women are college students who have not started their careers, yet have heard of the obstacles with being accepted that women of color face in traditional corporate America," Beal told A Plus.
For many young women of color, they have to choose to between keeping their normal appearance or looking more "business-like" in the workplace. Beal's photo series captures the essence of that struggle.
Here are 11 photos that perfectly show how it feels to be a young, black woman in today's corporate world:
