Uber’s recent (and disappointing) diversity report highlighted the disparity of jobs not only in its own ranks, but at many tech companies.
The New York Times reported:
According to Google’s most recent diversity report, for example, just 31 percent of its work force are women. Google also said 81 percent of its technical jobs were held by men, while 1 percent of its employees in the United States were black and 3 percent were Hispanic. Many of the numbers stack up roughly along the same lines at Apple and Facebook.
PR is also one of the only jobs at tech companies which in women make more than men—bad news for the tech industry, but promising for female communicators.
