Just Read: Beyond stories, first ever resume testing study of employment discrimination against transgender people

Way back when, people used to say, “come to work, leave your bias at home.” From multiple studies performed since the 20th Century ended, we now know that doesn’t work. It’s really “come to work, eliminate your bias, make your organization, community, the world a better and more successful place.”

Coming from Washington, DC’s Office of Human Rights (@DCHumanRights) is this first-of-its-kind-ever study of resume testing of discrimination based on gender identity. The study quantified the discrimination rate against transgender people by measuring employer responses to carefully crafted resumes attributed to human beings who either had evidence of gender non-conformity or not.
