Apple increases hiring of women and minorities

In its latest diversity report, Apple says it’s increased its hiring of women and minorities. 

Females make up 37% percent of new hires (versus 32% of current employees) and U.S. underrepresented minorities accounting for 27% (versus 22% of current employees). Apple includes “Black, Hispanic, Native American, Native Hawaiian, and Other Pacific Islander” in the underrepresented group and counts new hires within the last 12 months as of June.

In the report, Apple says it improved pay equity for its U.S. employees this year and is in the process of doing the same for “salaries, bonuses, and annual stock grants” of employees worldwide. The company says female employees earn one dollar for every dollar male employees earn, while underrepresented minorities earn one dollar for every dollar white employees earn.
