Alopecia Areata in the workplace

Though an alopecia areata diagnosis would have no affect on one's ability to perform in the workplace, many times individuals become distracted by their new appearance and the perceived reactions from co-workers.

Whether or not you decide to open up about your alopecia areata in the workplace is entirely up to you. For many individuals, it depends on the nature of their work enviroment, the level of closeness they feel with their co-workers, and ultimately, the level of safety they feel in discussing what they are going through.

There are many different ways individuals have opened up about their alopecia areata in their workplace, though it generally involves a component of education about the disease. If you would like to hear about different stragegies used to educate the workplace about alopecia areata, as well as different ways that individuals have opened up about their disease, please contact the NAAF office.
