Hiring discrimination: When your resume is (not) turning you down

Seminarium
Allmänt seminarium med Prof. Eva Derous, Ghent University

Although Western societies are becoming increasingly diverse, minority members (ethnic background, age, gender) still have weaker labour market positions compared to their majority counterparts. Hiring discrimination has been put forward as one explanation for this.

The first hurdle applicants need to take is the ‘popular’ resume screening stage. Fairness in resume screening seems surprisingly less investigated when compared to the number of studies on the adverse impact of personnel selection tests (e.g., cognitive ability, personality, work samples).  We will illustrate why this screening stage is particularly vulnerable to biased decision-making and discuss influences that reside in the applicant, job/organization, and recruiter.

The seminar will end with a critical reflection on practical ways to avert hiring discrimination in this first screening stage, such as qualification-based targeted recruitment, blind screening, and the use of algorithms.
