Media Skewers Facebook For Stagnant Diversity Report
Facebook's annual diversity report doesn't do much to improve last year's dismal numbers.By Ben Lawson | June 25, 2015
Facebook released its annual diversity report Thursday, revealing almost no change from last year's numbers.
Only 32 percent of the company's workforce were women, compared to 31 percent last year. And the racial statistics stayed pretty much stagnant. Whites still make up the majority, with Asians accounting for little over a third and then small numbers of people with black, Hispanic and mixed backgrounds.
And to put it lightly the media was pretty disappointed with the news. Facebook pretty much spent the day getting slammed with one negative headline after another.
