Apple investigated its work staff and found out that the majority of their U.S. workers is white men.
Apple informs that among 98,000 workers, 70 percent is male. In the U.S. etnithities of the staff are 55 percent white,15 percent Asian, 11 percent Hispanic and 7 percent black.
The race percent among members in other countries was not examined.
Tim Cook is seemed to be not pleased with the results of investigation:
“Let me say up front: As CEO, I’m not satisfied with the numbers on this page.. 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 as we are in developing our products.”
Non-tech workers in the U.S. are 56 percent white, 14 percent Hispanic, 9 percent Asian and 9 percent black.
Tech-staff is 54 percent white, 23 percent Asian, 7 percent Hispanic, and 6 percent black.
The distinction is bigger among officials – 64 percent heads are white. Asian are 21 percent, Hispanic are 6 percent, black are 3 percent.
Cook writes: “All around the world, our team at Apple is united in the belief that being different makes us better. We know that each generation has a responsibility to build upon the gains of the past, expanding the rights and freedoms we enjoy to the many who are still striving for justice.”
A month earlier Cook said that his company would give information about the variety in work staff, but warned that he is “more focused on actions” than providing with data.
Before the company was accused there is no multiplicity among its superior leadership.
The company replied that it will enlarge diversity, including a tweak to the company’s corporate charter that commits the direction to “actively [seek] out highly qualified women and individuals from minority groups to include in the pool from which board nominees are chosen.” The company also added Susan Wagner to its board of directors in July, substituting worker Bill Campbell who had worked for a long time and bringing another woman into the fold.
