NPR: Asian Last Names Lead to Fewer Job Interviews

NPR has recently published an article on unconscious bias in Canada. The article quotes a study which found that job applicants with Asian names were 28% less likely to be called for an interview.

A similar study conducted by the Australian National University in 2010 found that in Australia, a person with a Chinese name needed to submit 68 per cent more applications to obtain the same number of interviews as a person with an Anglo-Saxon name.
