Facebook is still dominated by White men despite Mark Zuckerberg’s repeated promise to get serious about building a workforce that better reflects the diversity of its 1.4 billion global users. In its diversity report released on Thursday the social network company revealed that more than half of its US staff are White, with the proportion dropping slightly from 57% to 55%. The proportion of Asian employees increased by 2% to 36%, but the shares of Hispanic and Black people or those of “two or more races” remained flat at 4%, 2% and 3% respectively. Facebook’s senior leadership is even more homogenous, with 73% of the most important positions filled by White people.
