PROJECT GATEKEEPER, THE REDUCTION OF JOB DISCRIMINATION BY THE USE OF SELF-CONFRONTATION AND FEEDBACK TO THE DISCRIMINATOR.
DAILEY, CHARLES A.
THE MAIN OBJECTIVE OF THIS PILOT STUDY WAS TO DESIGN A PROGRAM FOR TRAINING DECISION-MAKERS (EMPLOYERS) TO INTERACT WITH DISADVANTAGED PERSONS AND TO EVALUATE THEIR "CAREER POTENTIAL" MORE APPROPRIATELY. TRAINING METHODS INCLUDE THE USE OF VIDEOTAPE RECORDINGS AND PLAYBACK, AUDIOTAPE RECORDINGS OF INTERVIEWS AND PLAYBACK, SENSITIVITY TRAINING, ROLE-PLAYING (SIMULATED INTERVIEWING), PROGRAMED CASES, PROGRAMED PERSONNEL DATA, AND TRADITIONAL METHODS OF TRAINING SUCH AS LECTURING AND CASE STUDIES. FINDINGS OF EARLIER STUDIES AND EXPERIMENTS OF THIS STUDY ARE INCLUDED IN THE EVALUATIONS OF THE PROJECT. FINDINGS INCLUDE--(1) THE SOCIAL DISTANCE DESIRED BY THE APPLICANT WITH THE INTERVIEWER IS CORRELATED WITH THE UNDERSTANDING THE APPLICANT BELIEVES THE INTERVIEWER HAS FOR HIM, (2) THE SOCIAL DISTANCE VIEWED BY THE APPLICANT IS RELATED INVERSELY TO THE QUALIFICATION RATING OF THE APPLICANT BY THE INTERVIEWER, (3) INTERVIEWERS DO A BETTER JOB WHEN APPLICANTS FEEL QUALIFIED, (4) INTERVIEWERS DO A BETTER JOB WHEN THEY REGARD APPLICANTS AS QUALIFIED, AND (5) INTERVIEWERS DO A BETTER JOB WHEN THE APPLICANT'S RATING OF SOCIAL DISTANCE INDICATES GREATER INTIMACY AND UNDERSTANDING.
