• Apple Delivers Diversity Update

    As promised by Apple CEO Tim Cook in recent months, Apple on Tuesday shared with the world at large details on its workforce diversity.

    "At Apple," a statement from Cook shared this morning reads, "our 98,000 employees share a passion for products that change peopleís lives, and from the very earliest days we have known that diversity is critical to our success. We believe deeply that inclusion inspires innovation."

    Unfortunately, the data doesn't paint a very diverse picture. The resounding majority of Apple employees are both male and white. And by Cook's own admission, more needs to be done to make Apple a more diverse company.

    According to Apple's report, 70% of Apple's employees are male. 55% of its total workforce is white. 15%, we're told, is Asian. 11% is Hispanic and 7% of employees are African American.

    "Let me say up front: As CEO, I'm not satisfied with the numbers on this page," Cook concludes in the statement. "They're not new to us and we've been working hard for quite some time to improve them. We are making progress, and we're committed to being as innovative in advancing diversity ad we are in developing our products."
