Report: Facebook failing to increase diversity in its workforce

MENLO PARK, Calif. (KGO) -- Facebook has vowed to make its workforce more diverse, but according to its own research, it's making almost no progress.

The Menlo Park-based social media giant began tracking its workplace diversity in 2014 and, for the third year in a row, the numbers remained the same.

African-Americans make up just two percent of Facebook's total workforce across the U.S. Hispanics account for four percent.

Those percentages are even less in Facebook's tech sector specifically. There, African-Americans account for just one percent of workers and Hispanics account for three percent.

People of Asian descent represent 38 percent of the tech workforce.
