The concept of having no names on CVs so that is reduces bias for me is another example of not having an understanding of our diverse communities of the UK. For me, it assumes that the majority of people who do not originate from Britain have an unusual name. Well if we reflect on the spread of colonisation and Christianity, who ever proposed this should note that many names originate from the Christian bible if you are from the Caribbean or Black Africa, so bias has always occurred face to face. It also suggest that if you are white and British then you will have a typical British name (not sure what that is as the class system has a strong influence here also) that somehow identifies you as English or whatever the indigenous country is.. Is the intention here to show that anyone, no matter what their race, is at a disadvantage these days? The intention is also to reduce sexual bias. The way I see it, is that if an employer is going to be put off by your name, they are definitely going to be put off when they meet you either by your gender, race or accent.
