According to a new report from the Anita Borg Institute for Women and Technology, companies have many practical ways to hire more women in the science, technology, engineering, and math fields. One thing hiring managers can do to prevent unconscious gender bias during the application prescreening process is to conceal candidates’ names. Furthermore, every open position should include a viable female applicant. Companies can also provide cash rewards to encourage female employees to take advantage of their personal social networks to find female applicants.
