Carnegie Mellon Receives Textio Equity Award

The Office of Human Resources is pleased to announce that Carnegie Mellon University has received the inaugural Textio Equity Award. This award recognizes organizations with the greatest share of gender-neutral job postings written in 2020.

Textio is the tool CMU uses to scan job posting language for gender bias and recommend more inclusive alternatives; its data-backed language guidance enables the university to craft more welcoming job descriptions.

Textio reviewed language from customers’ job posts for 2020 and granted the Equity Award to the organizations with the highest percentage of job posts with a gender-neutral tone. From the hundreds of organizations using Textio, winners of this award stand out as committed champions of inclusion and have demonstrated exceptional intentionality in their language. CMU is the only higher education institution to receive the award.
