Gender fair job agency

Through the mailing list of the Swedish Profeminist Men's network Män för Jämställdhet I was made aware of a very nice initiative - a gender fair recruitment agency, Rättviseförmedlingen. The idea is to provide competent candidates of the underrepresented sex for open positions or events in sexually more or less segregated professions or fields. And to provide this assistance or consultancy for free. Currently they seem to have more than 8000 volunteer agents.

Two examples. A radio program needed experts on country music but could find only male experts. In less than an hour the agency located 20 female experts.
And a museum was looking for people to take care of their kids hour but got only female applicants. In a few hours the agency could provide an equal amount of male applicants.

Something we could replicate here ?
