New report shows slow but positive progress in employee diversity at Apple

In mid-August last year, Apple updated its diversity with numbers and a letter from CEO Tim Cook talking about the advances made, for example, in hiring women.

The company a few days ago published a report EEO-1 (PDF) updated that shows a slow, but positive progress in its diversity of employees.

In a 13-month period through August 2015, Apple claims to have hired 1,475 African Americans (31% more than a year earlier), 1,633 Hispanics (+ 24%) and 1,662 Asians (+ 29%), against 4,096 whites. The total number of women at Apple rose, in a year, from 28.7% to 30%.

At Apple's executive level, diversity is still relatively low: 83% are white men.
