Apple CEO Tim Cook reportedly is “not satisfied” with the company’s diversity. Cook said that, although on par with many other companies in Silicon Valley, Apple‘s diversity is not where he wants it to be.
“[The numbers are] not new to us, and we’ve been working hard for quite some time to improve them,” Cook added. He released these statements via a written message to employees on the diversity report page.
In the U.S., Apple’s employees are 55 percent white, 15 percent Asian, 11 percent Hispanic, 7 percent Black, 2 percent mixed, and 9 percent did not disclose their race in a survey. The report was broken down into three categories, including leadership, technology, and non-technology positions. Apple, which has 98,000 employees and 670 retail stores around the globe, did not disclose their diversity figures for other countries.
