What this app does: Currently in beta, this soon to be released app provides an innovative approach to a very serious diversity problem plaguing the tech. community.
This app features: Blendoor aims to remove the unconscious bias in the hiring process by excluding the name and photos of potential applicants. Applicants submit their resumes through Linkedin, and then Blendoor does the work of matching them with companies and blindly submitting their credentials.
Why you should use it: Stephanie Lampkin, creator of Blendoor sums it up nicely. “Time and time again we see people being discriminated against because of the way their name sounds or the color of their skin. I’m positioning this as what I think can be unconscious bias technology that can be applied to investors, people looking for apartments."
