Apple released an updated diversity report saying that it has achieved pay equity in the U.S. for people in similar roles and performance.
The report featured updated data on the demographics of the company’s employees. In the past year, Apple said it looked at total compensation for American employees and closed any pay gaps it found. Currently, it is analyzing the salaries, bonuses and annual stock grants of employees around the world, and it plans to address any pay gaps.
“Women earn one dollar for every dollar male employees earn,” the report said. “And underrepresented minorities earn one dollar for every dollar white employees earn.”
The report also said that Apple has been hiring more women and underrepresented minorities. Currently, the company still has a majority of men, and a majority of white people. Women make up 32% of Apple’s employees, and white people make up 56% of employees.
According to the report, 37% of Apple’s new hires are women, and 27% are underrepresented minorities. Most new hires are people of color, as 54% of its new hires are minorities.
Tech companies like Facebook, Microsoft and Apple have previously been pushed to discuss equal pay for employees.
