Yahoo Is More Diverse Than Google, but Not by Much

Slight difference here

Following a demographics disclosure trend in tech firms these days, Yahoo released data Tuesday about the diversity of its workforce.

According to self-reported data collected by the company, its workers are 37% female and 67% male, with 1% “undisclosed.” This hinges very closely to statistics released by Google last month, which revealed a labor pool similarly dominated by men (70% in Google’s case).

When it comes to race, Yahoo appears to be not quite as overwhelmingly white as Google (which was 61% white in its May disclosure). Yahoo’s data puts its workforce at 50% white and 39% Asian. However, the diversity still seems to suffer, as Hispanics represent just 4% of the labor force; black people, people of two or more races or those who did not disclose their race each encompass 2% of Yahoo employees.

“Here at Yahoo we are committed to attracting, developing and retaining a diverse workforce,” the company said. “We’re in the business of building products for hundreds of millions of users worldwide and that starts with having the best possible talent — a Yahoo team that understands and reflects our diverse user base.”
