Twitter released the gender and ethnicity make-up of employees Wednesday, and by their admission, there is room for improvement.
Men make up for 70 percent of Twitter’s staff. In terms of ethnicity, whites account for 59 percent of the staff, Asians for 29 percent.
“… we are joining some peer companies by sharing our ethnic and gender diversity data,” the social media network said. “And like our peers, we have a lot of work to do.”
So what’s Twitter planning to do about their lack of workplace diversity? The social media network says it has employee-led groups in place who are efforting the cause to include more women and minorities in Twitter’s expansion.
Time will tell if these attempts prove fruitful.
