Google Admits Blacks and Hispanics Are Just 5% of its Workforce

Google released a report on Wednesday outlining the demographic information about their employees, called "Getting to work on diversity at Google." 

According to the report, 70% of Google's employees are male, and 61% are white. Asian-Americans make up 30% of all employees, while black (2%) and Hispanic employees (3%) make up just 5% of the company's workforce combined.

Google readily admits in the report that they are "...miles from where we want to be" when it comes to diversity, although the company apparently has its reasons: women earn just 18% of all computer science degrees in the country, while black and Hispanic students earn just 5% of computer science degrees.

According to TechCrunch, statistics from the National Council of Women in Technology are about on par with Google's employee data: 25% of the professional computing jobs in the U.S. workforce in 2011 were held by women, and Google's numbers fall just short of that statistic.

The report continues by highlighting Google's efforts to combat their diversity problem. They claim that since 2010, they have donated $40 million to organizations "working to bring computer science education to women and girls," and have been "working with historically black colleges and universities to elevate coursework and attendance in computer science."

To their credit, Google is one of the few major technology companies to release employee diversity statistics. According to a report from CNN Money, getting tech companies in Silicon Valley to volunteer employee diversity information is a long and laborious process.

Earlier this month, Rev. Jesse Jackson visited Silicon Valley on a diversity mission, imploring big tech companies like eBay, Google, and Facebook to increase employee diversity at their companies. Google appears to have taken on that challenge head-on.
