White and male, Google releases diversity data

Google’s workforce is mostly made up of white men, a situation the tech giant says it’s trying to change.

On Wednesday Google released statistics documenting the diversity of its workforce for the first time, responding to escalating pressure on the technology industry to hire more minorities and women.

The numbers show 70 percent of the people working at the search giant are men, and 61 percent of the workers are white.

In a blog, Google’s senior vice president Laszlo Bock says that simply put, the company is not where it wants to be when it comes to diversity.
