Tech Workforce Lacks Diversity
Minorities are a small fraction of high-technology workforces, especially at the senior level in Silicon Valley, California, shows a recent study from the Anita Borg Institute for Women and Technology. Minorities made up only 6.1% of technical men and 8.2% of technical women at high-tech companies in 2008.
|Out of total 100%|
|African American Men||0.4%||1.0%||1.8%|
|African American Women||4.6%||2.7%||1.6%|
