Google Releases Employee Data, Illustrating Tech's Diversity Challenge

Google released statistics on the makeup of its work force, giving clear evidence of the diversity problem at the technology firm, the New York Times reports. Of its U.S. employees, 2% are black, 3% are Hispanic, about a third are Asian and 61% are white. That compares to the U.S. workforce overall, where 80% of employees are white, 12% are black and 5% are Asian. And while 30% of Google’s 46,170 employees worldwide are women, just 17% of its technical employees are women.
