Who dominates Facebook workforce, male or female?

27 June 2014 [11:00] - TODAY.AZ
Like many of its Silicon Valley peers, Facebook's workforce and management team is overwhelmingly white and male, according to the social media giant's first diversity report.

Released on Wednesday, the report is the latest in a flurry of voluntary diversity disclosures by high-profile tech firms.

The facts show that 69% of Facebook's global staffers are male. A full 85% of the company's tech workers, and 77% of its management team, are also men.

The company's U.S. workforce is 57% white, 34% Asian, 4% Hispanic and 2% black.

"As these numbers show, we have more work to do -- a lot more," Maxine Williams, Facebook's global head of diversity, said in a statement.

The report shows that while Facebook (FB, Tech30) has women including "Lean In" author Sheryl Sandberg in prominent positions, diversity at the company is roughly in line with rivals including Google, Yahoo and LinkedIn.
