Technical Interviews Are Broken, Day 2409

From an older study (June, 2020) that recently came across my desk:

For example, in our study, all of the women who took the public interview failed, while all of the women who took the private interview passed. Our study was limited, and a larger sample size would be needed to draw firm conclusions, but the idea that the very design of the interview process may effectively exclude an entire class of job candidates is troubling.

(Emphasis mine.)

Pretty sure that if you've ever stopped to listen to these “classes of job candidates,” you'd already know this.
