    This seems to be well intentioned but I see some practical problems. How do you contact them for an interview if you don't have their name? If the position requires or desires certain academic credentials or training, how do you qualify them if there is no academic information on the CV? If prejudice exists in the organization, it's going to rear it's head during the interview process anyway. It seems to me the solution is not to "trick" recruiters into interviewing minority candidates but to address the issue of prejudice in the first place.
