Redesigning Hiring For an Inclusive Future

Have you ever been frustrated applying for a job? You send out 100s of CVs, trying to paint a detailed picture of your skills, abilities, and challenges, only to never hear back.

The typical hiring project is rife with bias, relying on poor predictors for future success.

Years of research, in education and welfare policy, show that human biases are embedded in hiring.

Applied are redesigning the hiring process to give every candidate an equal opportunity. Putting skills over credentials, and science over the status quo.
