Internships: Internship in Automatic Speech Recognition
Editor for this issue: Luiza Newlin Lukowicz
The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we have no means of enforcing these standards.
