Pinterest shares diversity numbers: 40% female, 50% Caucasian

Pinterest today released a diversity report for its organization, revealing that it’s composed of 40 percent female employees and 50 percent Caucasian.

The figures were shared by Pinterest engineer Tracy Chou, who called for greater transparency last year about the proportion of women tech employees in the industry. Since then, a number of major companies have piled on to share their diversity figures, including Google, Facebook and Twitter.

In terms of gender ratios, Pinterest fared noticeably better than other tech companies. While just 21 percent of its tech segment is female, that’s better than Twitter’s 10 percent and Facebook’s 15 percent.

Interestingly, Pinterest has a larger representation of Asian employees than other firms. Asians came in second at 42 percent of its global workforce, with just a small fraction of employees classified as Other, Hispanic and African American.
