Apple and Diversity

Tim Cook, on the Apple website:

Apple is committed to transparency, which is why we are publishing statistics about the race and gender makeup of our company. Let me say up front: As CEO, I’m not satisfied with the numbers on this page. They’re not new to us, and we’ve been working hard for quite some time to improve them. We are making progress, and we’re committed to being as innovative in advancing diversity as we are in developing our products.

Lack of diversity is not a new thing to tech. It's a very common and very visible issue. However, I do love that Tim is increasing visibility and I believe him when he says they are always trying to build a more diverse working environment. I can only hope Apple's transparency inspires inclusion across the industry.
