Here at Yahoo we are committed to attracting, developing and retaining a diverse workforce. We’re in the business of building products for hundreds of millions of users worldwide and that starts with having the best possible talent - a Yahoo team that understands and reflects our diverse user base.
Today, we are happy to join others in the tech industry in disclosing specifics around the diversity of Yahoo’s workforce. The charts below detail gender and ethnicity statistics (as self reported) and how they break out across technical, non-technical and leadership roles across the company.
*Leadership defined as VP’s and above
Data as of June, 2014
These statistics are only a part of the story - Yahoo works to ensure that our existing employees feel welcome and supported during their time at the company. We have a wide range of Employee Resource Groups that serve people of diverse backgrounds and are highly engaged in their respective communities. For example, Yahoo received a 100% Corporate Equality Index score and was named a “Best Place to Work for LGBT Equality.”
Overall, our goal at Yahoo is to create a workplace culture that attracts and retains all talents, regardless of background, and to help our people grow to their full potential.
