Council Post: Using AI To Block Unconscious Bias, Widen The Talent Pool And Increase Diversity
Here’s how it works: An organization runs a job description through its AI platform, and the algorithm will suggest alternatives to biased, gendered or off-putting language, helping develop a more balanced job description. Then, when a resume is submitted, the technology strips out elements that might create bias — name, pronouns, address, educational institutions, extracurricular activities, etc.
Leading-edge technologies will then use AI to match candidates to the job and create a forced-rank list of candidates based on skills and experience. Essentially, AI provides hiring managers with an unbiased look at how candidates rank based on objective criteria.
