Masculine- themed job adverts signal to women that they do not belong in that workplace

 

Employers may unknowingly be discouraging female job seekers from applying for jobs merely by the way their job adverts are worded. Masculine-themed words (such as competitive, dominate, and leader) present in job adverts can dissuade women from applying because they cue that women do not belong. These masculine themed job adverts often have a discriminatory effect, even though they do not have a discriminatory intent. This is…

He admitted to being a technophobe and for the most part either unwilling or unable to make use of the various technologies that so many of us take for granted.
