Vice president of people experience and head of diversity and inclusion Dalana Brand said in a blog post presenting the results that as of May, the company was on track to meet its December 2019 targets for women and blacks, but it is running slightly behind for Latinx.
As of May, women made up 41.2% of Twitter’s workforce (the December target is 43%), blacks accounted for 4.7% (5%) and Latinx made up 4% (5%). Brand said Twitter is prioritizing Latinx hiring, inclusion and retention efforts.
All three groups rose in terms of representation among the company’s leadership ranks, as women made up 36.7% in May (up from 35.8% in December 2018), blacks 5.8% (up from 4.7%) and Latinx 3.2% (up from 2.7% last December).
The company did not report as much progress in technical roles, as women accounted for 21.3% in May, up from 20.2% in December, while black representation was unchanged at 2.9% and Latinx edged up to 3.3% from 3.2%.
