Apple reveals workforce 70% male, 55% white

Coverage Type: 

Apple became the latest tech company to reveal the diversity of its workforce, and as has been the trend, the Cupertino giant is dominated by white men.

The iPhone maker said only 30% of its 98,000 employees are women. The number drops to 28% when it comes to leadership roles, but that is actually a higher percentage than at other tech companies.

In terms of race and ethnicity, Apple said it's split 55% white, 15% Asian, 11% Latino and 7% black, but those figures include retail store employees. In tech-specific jobs, the numbers skew toward whites and Asians, at 54% and 23% respectively, while Latinos fall to 7% and blacks drop to 6%
