Facebook Diversity report reveals…well…exactly what we all expected!

This week Facebook released their employee diversity report, a new ideal brought about by Google to provide more transparency over large tech companies’ employee intake. In theory, this is a nice practice which would reveal the fair and positive mix of race, sex and ethnicity amongst the ranks of the world’s top companies. The reality is that Facebook (as well as Google, Yahoo and LinkedIn) are all skewed with Asian, white and male employees.





Despite the rather disappointing results from Facebook, they do admit “that we have more work to do – a lot more”. There is a certain comfort that can be gained from the world’s largest and most famous companies feeling the need to be transparent with this sensitive information, especially in the light of the fact that the results do not paint them in the greatest light. However, the overwhelming feeling is that the world still has a long way to go to achieve equality in the workplace.
