Removing names from public service job applications to tackle “unconscious” gender bias, a move championed by Bill Shorten yesterday, backfired in a previous trial, which found men benefited the most from the change.
The Conservative Party sees such nanny-state tokenism as indicative of Shorten's Stalinist approach to government which he will force into every aspect of our lives.
The Australian reports, the Opposition Leader yesterday talked up his record on addressing gender discrimination promising that gender-neutral resumes will be a priority in the public service.
Former Australian public service commissioner John Lloyd said blind recruitment was unnecessary, given women already held 59 per cent of jobs in the bureaucracy and representation at senior levels was increasing, while a trial involving 14 public service agencies in June 2017 found the system didn't work.
Conservative Party leader Cory Bernardi told Paul Murray Live on Sky News, he can totally see why Shorten prefers anonymity when going for a job.
