    Sgt Peter Allan branded 'meddlesome' for saying store signs are discriminatory
    He tweeted Sainsbury's a pictured of 'feminine care' shelves in one of its stores
    He said said: 'It's an issue of gender identity. Men may perhaps use the products'
    Sergeant also tweeted Tesco over their signage above feminine sanitary items
    But the PC sergeant was blasted for being over-officious and meddlesome

    Maybe he's just frustrated because his children don't spoil him enough on Father's Day....

    Job applications could use the 'Blind Application' approach, that way fairness is ensured. You have to make your application process blind, which erases your identity, your gender, your age from your submission. A good example is one of the most watched TV shows in the USA which used this approach (actually, most of them do.) As a result half of the staff are women and one-third are non-white which shows that prejudices are mainly made in other ways.

    What Is Blind Hiring and Should You Use It in Your Hiring Process?
    If people like Rupert Murdoch, Nigel Farage, George Galloway, Nick Griffin and Marine Le Pen want Britain to leave the EU. Where does that put you?

    There's now an app for that....

    The HR process is filled with bias, and SAP is selling tech to change that | Quartz

    In an effort to recruit more diverse workforces, companies have hired chief diversity officers, set solid goals, and installed new policies that aim to curb bias. One of the largest enterprise software companies in the world is making a case that technology can help, too.

    SAP last year committed to building software capabilities that “improve workplace diversity.” Within the coming months, it plans to add two new anti-bias features as options in its HR software suite, which is used at 6,200 companies to manage processes such as recruitment, performance reviews, and payroll.

    The preview posts remembered me an article that I read using blind review. This article does not mention the gender of the teachers, but I read one that the gender were women. Not surprised because women discriminate women.

    In math, the girls outscored the boys in the exam graded anonymously, but the boys outscored the girls when graded by teachers who knew their names. The effect was not the same for tests on other subjects, like English and Hebrew. The researchers concluded that in math and science, the teachers overestimated the boys' abilities and underestimated the girls', and that this had long-term effects on students' attitudes toward the subjects.

    Perhaps I should point out that I think that for all but a few applications, studying a degree for IT is a complete waste of time perpetuated only to serve universities. It should be GCSE + BTEC then apprenticeship to learn the trade. IT is a practical subject and should be taught as such. Why anyone thinks it's a good use of time to spend three years learning a paper course while the industry completely redesigns itself probably doesn't get IT. Further more for those espousing Maths at A and above. the City was more than happy taking traders on at eighteen with only a GCSE maths to hand. Frankly the candidates own performance would self select them for greatness. The whole push to degrees as an entry point was just the latest exclusionary tactic to ensure that companies had little true diversity and everyone sat like a good little drone. I think the problem started with HR degrees
