With a new graphical statistic report provided by Google, the search engine and technology giant is admitting to having a diversity problem within its workforce. According to Google, its current workforce consists of 70 percent men and 30 percent women. Additionally, of all of its workers, 61 percent are white, 30 percent are Asian, four percent are two or more races, three percent are Hispanic, two percent are black, and the remaining one percent is classified as other. Senior Vice President of People Operations, Laszlo Bock, stated alongside of the report that Google is not where it wants to be in regards to diversity. The company has, and is currently, putting a massive amount of energy, money, and time into a specific education effort. This effort is aimed at improving the rate of women, blacks, and Hispanics graduating college with computer science degrees, a degree that Google generally looks for when hiring applicants.
