Google: Still mostly white men work for us

Google is still struggling with lack of diversity, admitting Tuesday in its second annual diversity report that white men still dominate the tech giant's workforce.

"We're still not where we want to be when it comes to diversity," the company said in its 2015 diversity report. "It is hard to address these kinds of challenges if you're not prepared to discuss them openly, and with the facts."

Here's what Google's employees look like: 70% of Google's total workforce are men, and 60% of those are white. Also, 82% of its tech workers are white and 59% of those are men.

Among Google's (GOOGL) leadership, 78% are men of whom 72% are white. Women represent 22% of its leadership roles.

These latest numbers from Google show that the needle hardly budged in these breakdowns compared to last year's report.

Still, the company said it remains committed to recruiting "talented and diverse people."

In May, Google announced an ambitious $150 million plan to attract more women and minorities, and said that the money would go to outside organizations and communities, while the other half would be be used internally to make Google more inclusive.

Other steps it set in motion have included sending Google engineers to historically black universities and looking for fresh talent at a wider variety of colleges.

The company said it also offers a variety of scholarships for students of color, women, students with disabilities, and veterans in its bid to invest in promising talent even before they graduate.

"We're working toward a Web that includes everyone ... It's going to take time to get there," the report said.
