Re: Just employ most suitable candidates
more likely that they're disqualified due to ageism. I've heard "they seem a bit old", "they've been doing this a long time, why haven't they moved up" far more than I've heard "don't want a xyz" infact I've never heard people not wanting someone based on gender/ethnicity much the other way around, most people I've seen will bend over backwards to hire a female candidate.
Ironically the last time they tried name and gender blind cv's the number of women interviewed plummeted... Why? Because then they're not the one of only 3 CV's that are female versus the 47 that are male.
