Saw this interesting story. Could it (or should it) be a trend for those of us who actually still have regular jobs???
I think it can help. It forces people to confront their biases. If after interviews they refuse to hire someone, they have to give explicit reasons. Much harder than silently tossing out resumes that don’t confirm to stereotypes.
Some of the online job portal let you turn on “Unbiased filter”. It basically replaces candidate names & profile photo with the initials. That’s what our company uses when we are screening the candidate.
