Like every year, Apple has updated the page presenting the diversity of its staff. We learn that out of 165,000 employees spread across the world, 34.8% of them are women and 65.2% men. It’s progressing: in 2014, Apple only had 30% women. In the United States, 43.8% of employees are white, while there are 27.9% people of Asian origin, 14.8% Hispanic and 9.4% African American. In 2014, 55% of the company’s workforce was white.
