The percentage of workers in the social network has grown in a year from 34% to 37 %. Up to 3 out of every 10 of their leaders are also women.

With the conclusion of 2016, Twitter has updated its diversity report. And has done so with certain developments that have been celebrated for their vice president of Inclusion and Diversity, Jeffrey Siminoff.

Siminoff explains that, “over 2016, we implement practices that advance our commitment” with a template that not only white men among their components, “we identify and act on vulnerabilities that are in the way, and we partner with organizations that can help us to ensure that we are building a diverse work force and inclusive”.

“our commitment” says the officer, “we have seen progress in the hiring and career development, culture, policies, and, as a result, an increase in the overall representation of women and underrepresented minorities”.

So, percentage of women who work for Twitter has grown in one year from 34% to 37 %. This has been noted in the positions of leadership, where it has gone from 22% to 30 %, and also in the jobs technicians, whose trademark feminine is now positioned in the 15 %. In fact, the goals for 2016 Twitter were to achieve a 35 % representation for women overall and 25 % of policies, both overcome. What has not been achieved, by a point, is a 16 % of women in jobs of a technical nature. In non-technical terms, more than half of Twitter employees are women.

“we Know that the effects of our actions”, you acknowledge Jeffrey Siminoff, “may not be immediate”. Although the aim is to finish by encouraging “a culture of belonging which is totally at the height of the own spirit of the community on Twitter”. And, in the end, “make it better not only for us but for the industry as a whole bigger”. You will see.
