Facebook releases workforce diversity statistics

Like many of its Silicon Valley peers, Facebook’s workforce and management team is overwhelmingly white and male.

That’s 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 69 percent of facebook’s global staffers are male.

A full 85 percent of the company’s tech workers, and 77 percent of its management team, are also men.

The company’s US workforce is 57 percent white, 34 percent Asian, four percent Hispanic and two percent black.

The report shows while facebook has women in prominent positions…

Diversity at the company is roughly in line with rivals including Google, Yahoo and Linkedin.

Facebook’s global head of diversity said the numbers show they have a lot more work to do.
