“Apple’s U.S. workforce is a bit more diverse than it was a year ago, but still predominantly white and male, suggests the most recent EEO-1 Federal Employer Information report,” Luke Dormehl reports for Cult of Mac.

“According to newly-released figures, roughly 30 percent of Apple’s U.S. employees are female, around 8.6 percent are African-American, and 11.7 percent are hispanic or Latino,” Dormehl reports. “That’s marginally up from 29 percent female, 8 percent African-American, and 11.5 percent hispanic and Latino in 2014.”

Dormehl reports, “Close to 83 percent of Apple’s senior execs and managers are male, with 83.5 percent also white.”
