Google concedes in diversity data that employees mainly male and white

John Ribeiro | May 30, 2014
70 percent of Google's employees are men and 61 percent of its U.S. employees are white, according to a workforce diversity report released by the company.

Jackson and Rainbow Push Coalition have praised Google's decision to release the data. "We believe it is time for other tech companies to follow Google's lead. We challenge them to also voluntarily release their Equal Employment Opportunity Data/Reports," Jackson said in a statement.

The reports are typically filed with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and companies are not required to make the information public. When asked to provide similar data about its employees at its annual meeting, Facebook said it would not do so immediately, according to reports.
