Google Releases Workforce Demographics


Google revealed the gender and racial makeup of its workforce on Wednesday, saying that it "was not where we want to be when it comes to diversity."

According to the data released by the search giant, Blacks and Hispanics made up just 2 and 3 percent of overall employees at Google, respectively, while women accounted for 30 percent.

Google said that the employment gaps for women and minorities in the tech sector may stem from education. Women earn roughly 18 percent of all computer science degrees in the United States, while Blacks and Hispanics make up under 10 percent of U.S. college grads and collect fewer than 5 percent of degrees in CS majors, respectively.

"..we’re the first to admit that Google is miles from where we want to be—and that being totally clear about the extent of the problem is a really important part of the solution," Laszlo Bock, senior vice president of people operations,
said in the Wednesday blogpost.

Bock added that Google has donated more than $40 million to organizations promoting computer science education among women.
