Facebook's fifth annual diversity report shows slow improvement

4 days ago   |   By The Verge

Facebook's annual diversity report is out, and if you've been following these for the past few years , you already know what to expect: small improvements that, while welcome, are still an indication that bigger change in employee diversity at the company may demand a different approach to what Facebook has been doing so far.

This doesn't mean the slate is bad (though I think I'll have reached my Shepard Smith saturation point within two hours of his weekday...

Facebook's diversity efforts show little progress after five years

4 days ago   |   By TechCrunch

Facebook has released its fifth diversity report, and it's fine. Unless companies fire everyone and start over, we're not going to see drastic improvements anytime soon.
“A critical lesson we've learned is that recruiting, retaining and developing a diverse, inclusive workforce should be a priority from day one,” Facebook Chief Diversity Officer Maxine Williams wrote in a blog post. “The later you start taking deliberate action to increase diversity, the harder it becomes.”
