A recent study found that there has been little change in incorporating people of color in leadership roles within the technology industry—specifically Asian women:
“Asians are least likely to be promoted to managerial or executive positions in the San Francisco Bay Area’s technology sector, even as they are the largest minority group of professionals and are most likely to be hired, according to one study.
The findings come from a report entitled “The Illusion of Asian Success,” released in October by the Ascend Foundation, a nonprofit that advocates for Asians in business.
The group analyzed publicly available data from the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) as well as several companies’ self-published EEOC diversity reports. The data set ranged from 2007 to 2015 and includes hundreds of companies in the San Francisco Bay Area, among them Apple, Facebook, and Google.”
