ONLINE EVENT: Discrimination By Algorithm – Will Technology Subvert Supreme Court’s Affirmative Action Ruling? (Sunday, July 23 at 7:30 PM Eastern)
Exploring what the future holds for stealth quotas and what can be done to stop them is the focus of this free online webinar.
Discrimination by algorithm and AI to achieve stealth quotas unfortunately is not new, but it is the wave of the future after the Supreme Court ruling rejecting Affirmative Action. REGISTER HERE for this FREE online webinar to learn how stealth quotas work and what can be done to stop them.
You may have learned about the use of algorithms to manipulate pools of job applicants through our exposé about LinkedIn’s ‘Diversity in Recruiting’ function. But it’s not limited to LinkedIn. Already there is tremendous pressure in many places to manipulate alogirithms and Artificial Intelligence to achieve predetermined racial, ethnic, and sex quotas. This pernicious discrimination is unseen and generally unknown to job seekers, and even in many ways to recruiters/employers. These stealth quotas will be part of the efforts to evade the Supreme Court’s ruling striking down race-based affirmative action. What once was done in plain sight will be done out of sight. You have been warned! REGISTER HERE.
This event is sponsored by the Equal Protection Project.
