In 2020, many Silicon Valley companies promised for greater diversity in tech.
“Last June, social media feeds became flooded with corporate statements about how companies would promote racial equity within and beyond their workforce. The commitments came after the police murder of George Floyd sparked protests around the country. One year after those initial statements, many tech companies seem to have met several of their initial goals while promising to expand their commitments to diversity and inclusion efforts and racial justice causes.”
Companies like Apple, Google, and Facebook are well on their way to fulfilling promises made to internal and external stakeholders during 2020. Simply looking at the numbers, it is clear companies have boosted their diversity in tech by successfully planning and implementing DEI initiatives. But how do they actually diversify supplier networks, increase the number of female executives, or augment existing DEI programs?
