Facebook plans to double women workforce globally by 2024
Facebook released the new targets alongside its annual diversity report, which details the ethnic and gender breakdown of its workforce.
In the next five years, Facebook, the world’s largest social media company, aims to double the percentage of women working at the social media giant around the world, while simultaneously doubling the number of black and Hispanic employees in the US, setting new diversity goals for the organization.
In the report, the company said women currently make up 36.9 percent of staff, up from 36.3 percent last year, and 31 percent in 2014. However, at the senior leadership level, women account for 32.6 percent of staff, up from 30 percent last year.
Also, the brand wants half of its US workforce to be from underrepresented groups by 2024.
