This online session is designed to generate insight into algorithmic bias in employment assessment software tools (aka hiring). Using a rotating presenter/panel format and building on timely field-based debates, the goal is to establish a common point of entry into the issue by tackling the socio-historical foundation of bias in technology that is present in today’s systems, especially algorithmic auditing initiatives (Mona Sloane); engaging in a deep dive into how these tools actually work, including the role of data in decisions, through the accessible metaphor of baking sourdough bread (Julia Stoyanovich); and sharing concrete evidence of current impacts through recent research, first-hand experience of such tools and critical perspectives on algorithmic auditing (Hilke Schellmann).
