Mark Zuckerberg Acknowledges Tech Industry’s Diversity Problem
It's no secret that the tech community has an issue with diversity, Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, said at North Carolina A&T State University, where he was asked what minority students should do to try and progress in a sector dominated by white men. He said companies need to do more, but people from minority backgrounds should just focus on being the best. Despite pledges, Facebook isn’t very diverse, and women make up only 33% of its global workforce (the industry average is 17%), and race is also a huge issue: at Facebook US, only 4% of the workforce is Latino and 2% black.
