Diversity just doesn’t seem to be Silicon Valley’s forte, but some of the largest tech companies in the U.S. have released employment statistics in order to spur diversity growth. First it was Google, then it was Yahoo and LinkedIn, and now Apple has released numbers saying that its global workforce is predominantly male and predominantly white.
Apple released a post on the company website on August 12 detailing the gender and racial breakdowns of their workforce. 55 percent of Apple’s employees are white, while the next highest racial group is Asian at 15 percent. Meanwhile, 70 percent of the company’s workforce worldwide is male.
