NEW YORK (AP) — Uber’s first report on employee diversity shows low numbers for women, especially in technical positions.
The report comes as pressure mounts on the company in light of sexual harassment claims by a former employee.
Thirty-six percent of the company’s employees are women. Google, in comparison, has 31 percent women and Apple, 32 percent.
Uber’s report doesn’t count drivers as employees.
It shows that nearly 9 percent of U.S. employees are Black and almost 6 percent are Hispanic. At Google, a much larger company, the numbers are 2 percent and 3 percent, respectively.
Uber also says 15 percent of its employees hold work visas.
