"Google is not where we want to be when it comes to diversity," said Laszlo Bock, senior vice president of people operations at Google, in a statement. That's an understatement: Google's self-reported numbers show that 70 percent of its employees are male, and 61 percent are white. And while 30 percent of Google's employees are Asian, Latinos and blacks make up just three and two percent of the company, respectively.
"We're the first to admit that Google is miles from where we want to be," Bock said. "Being totally clear about the extent of the problem is a really important part of the solution."
