Trying to improve your hiring practices and increase diversity at your workplace? Reduce room for unconscious bias when reviewing job candidates' online materials.

This extension hides a candidate's profile picture and name when you're looking at their GitHub or LinkedIn page or their Twitter feed.

Why? More than two decades of research have indicated that despite our best efforts, unconscious bias is inescapable. But removing room for biases can help. (Auditioning musicians behind a privacy screen, for instance, is famously credited with increasing the percentage of women musicians in orchestras from 5 percent to 25 percent since the 1970s.
