Women of North African origin less discriminated against in hiring than men


While applications that suggest a North African origin are disadvantaged, women fare better than men,

As we know, recruiters still succumb to stereotypes.

In 2018, applications from people who appear to be of North African origin had a 20% less chance of getting a response, according to a study commissioned by the government.

But discrimination in hiring does not hit everyone in the same way.

In reality, women who appear to be of North African origin more often receive positive responses than men of North African origin, for the same level of competence and a similar profile, according to a study by Dares, the statistical unit of the Ministry of Labor. .

During the year 2020, "9,600 fictitious applications were sent to real job offers", specifies the organization.

The CVs were "of comparable quality".

Except that in practice, positive responses were 10% more frequent when the application came from a supposedly Maghrebian woman than when the CV indicated that a supposedly Maghrebian man was applying.

A stronger effect in masculine professions

“If women are favored in masculine occupations, the favor they enjoy is reduced for mixed occupations.

In addition, the inequalities between the two groups disappear for the trades in tension, specifies the Dares, in its press release.

In other words, recruiters in sectors considered to be male - engineers, restaurant managers - will more often recruit Maghrebian women than Maghreb men.

The difference is less in trades with little connotations.

And in the sectors which have difficulty in recruiting, there is no difference according to the gender of the person of North African origin.

The same study had previously shown that recruiters did not differentiate between the applications of women and men with a supposedly French origin.

This does not mean that women in general do not suffer from discrimination in other professional fields.

They have less access to very high positions in the hierarchy and are often paid less.
