I found this product and thought it was a great way for people to do an initial check on whether their job advert uses 'gender coded' language. It can help companies to see if their are subtle issues in their job adverts that could be off-putting for women. The tool uses the original list of gender-coded words from the research paper written by Danielle Gaucher, Justin Friesen, and Aaron C. Kay: Evidence That Gendered Wording in Job Advertisements Exists and Sustains Gender Inequality.

Nice find, @hinelc. Textio is a similar tool that goes a bit deeper.

@rrhoover Ah thanks for the recommendation. I hadn't seen Textio! I'll definitely be using that too :)

@rrhoover @hinelc Great shout! I'm in the process of curating collection of tools to help write great job descriptions - I've got them both in there :)

@rrhoover agree Textio is fantastic and does seem to be a richer tool

Love it, so interesting. Came up with a code error when I first tried it but worked the second time.
