‚ÄúResearchers...asked more than 100 science faculty members at academic institutions across the country to evaluate one of two student r√©sum√©s. The r√©sum√©s were identical except for one small part: The candidate‚Äôs name was either John or Jennifer. Despite both candidates having the exact same qualifications and experience, science faculty members were more likely to perceive John as competent and select him for a hypothetical lab manager position.‚ÄĚ This study actually gets worse.
