Gender and Race Preferences in Hiring in the Age of Diversity Goals

An interesting paper on gender and race in the hiring process. Based on Applicant Tracking System data from 8 Silicon Valley Tech companies (“dataset contains 896k applicants across 6,113 job openings spanning 5 years from 2014 to 2018”).


While gender diversity in Tech is far from a solved problem, this paper points to some results of D&I initiatives in these 8 Tech companies - e.g. “women are 9-10% more likely to receive a callback compared to men”. It also highlights a lag in diversity initiatives aimed at other groups - e.g. “Black, Hispanic, and Asian applicants are 8-13% less likely to receive a callback compared to White applicants”.



“The demand-for-diversity argument may provide a plausible explanation for the outcome gap in favor of women. Turning to race, however, we document some results that seem counterintuitive to this argument: non-White applicants are less likely to receive callback compared to White applicants, and that these outcome gaps are unlikely to cancel-out in the later stages.”


Etymological Fun Fact

Happy, perhaps, and happen are descendants of the Middle English term hap meaning "chance, a person's luck, fortune, or fate."
