OOPS! Gender-Blind Job Application Process Leads to More Men Hired, Study Finds

In a recent study, liberals and feminists set out to show that if job applications were ‘gender-blind’ that there would be more equality in the hiring process in terms of men, women, and other weird genders being hired by companies.

Needless to say, they weren’t happy with the results…

Breitbart reported:

An initiative by the leaders of Australian Public Service to promote gender equality through blind recruitment efforts has failed, according to reports.

The trial, which was an effort to push more women in senior position jobs, revealed that removing the gender from a candidate’s application does not help boost gender equality in hiring. The trial also revealed that adding a male name to a candidate’s application made them 3.2 percent less likely to get the job while adding a female name made it 2.9 percent more likely that the candidate would be hired.

Researchers assumed that removing gender identifiers from an application would make it easier for women to obtain employment in senior positions that have traditionally been dominated by men.

“We anticipated this would have a positive impact on diversity — making it more likely that female candidates and those from ethnic minorities are selected for the shortlist,” said Professor Michael Hiscox, a Harvard academic. “We found the opposite, that de-identifying candidates reduced the likelihood of women being selected for the shortlist.”

Absolutely hilarious when the left uses science – in this case a scientific study – which comes back to prove them wrong!
