This problem was experienced firsthand when my mother found out she was paid less than the men who reported to her. Our idea is the NoFace app, where job-searchers can create anonymous profiles with auto-generated usernames without pictures. Each user’s profile will showcase their resume, skills, and education. Job interviews will be facilitated through the app using a gender-neutral voice transmitter without a camera.

It will assist in ending the gender pay gap and level out the playing field globally for job applicants. By diversifying the workforce, NoFace can ensure that the next generation will have a brighter, less discriminatory future. &lt;/p&gt;" data-medium-file="https://www.cooperhewitt.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/HonorableMention_YaraSamad_YounasNaira-215x300.jpg" data-large-file="https://www.cooperhewitt.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/HonorableMention_YaraSamad_YounasNaira.jpg" /><p>Yara Samad, age 15, and Naira Younas, age 16 Henry M.
