Yahoo Offers Workforce Diversity Data


On Tuesday, Yahoo became one of the few companies to share basic demographic information on the diversity of its workforce.

The charts below detail gender and ethnicity statistics (as self reported) and how they break out across technical, non-technical and leadership roles across the company.





Globally, about 37 percent of the Internet company's more than 12,000 workers are women, and just 23 percent of the senior managers are women, Yahoo said in a blog post.

Yahoo also provided data on the ethnicity of its United States workforce, saying that 50 percent of its workers are white, 39 percent Asian, 4 percent Hispanic, 2 percent black and 4 percent undisclosed or more than one race. Asians make up 57 percent of Yahoo's tech workers, compared to the 35 percent of the tech workforce that is white. Yet when it came to leading technology teams, nearly four out of five of the bosses where white and less than a fifth were Asian. Whites also dominated the nontechnical management jobs, although to a lesser extent.

"Overall, our goal at Yahoo is to create a workplace culture that attracts and retains all talents, regardless of background, and to help our people grow to their full potential," said Jackie Reses, Chief Development Officer at Yahoo.

Yahoo's disclosure came in response to Google's disclosure of its own diversity data at the end of May.

Last Thursday, LinkedIn disclosed its own diversity figures, which were similar to Yahoo's.
