After Google, Twitter, and Facebook, now Apple has released its diversity report which shows a majority of males, and whites.


Apple notes that 70 percent of its 98,000 employees around the world are male, but that 'inclusion and diversity' are on the top of the list of priorities for Apple CEO Tim Cook.

Earlier, Google also released a 'male dominating' diversity report, with 83 percent male employees. Facebook too has a similar diversity with 69 percent male and 31 percent female employees.

The new metrics are primarily for the US, where the majority of its employees reside. Apple notes that more than half of its employees in non-tech, tech, and leadership roles are white.

Asians come in second highest at 23 percent and 21 percent of employees the tech and leadership areas respectively.
