Apple Hires More Women, But Men Continue to Dominate
Apple is breaking the glass ceiling – slowly.
According to the company's latest diversity report, the company has made strides to close its gender gap.
In June 2014, Apple CEO Tim Cook promised changes would be made to the predominately white male workforce.
"We're working hard to expand our recruiting efforts, so we continue to hire talented people from groups that are currently underrepresented in the industry," Cook said, according to Engadget.
Engadget reports that globally, the company hired 11,000 women over the past year, compared to around 6,500 the year before.
They also report that the company took on 50 percent more black employees and 66 percent more Hispanics in the U.S. over the same period.
Apple is taking measures to be more diverse. According to Engadget, they are supporting historically black colleges and disadvantaged universities, and are increasing intern diversity.
