Cook says Apple will release diversity data

Updated

Apple CEO Tim Cook said at the Sun Valley media conference that his company will release information “at some point” regarding the diversity of Apple’s workforce, Bloomberg reports. Cook didn’t give an exact timeline for such a disclosure, saying, “We are more focused on actions.” Silicon Valley companies have drawn heat recently for a lack of diversity. Facebook recently reported its employees are 91 percent white or Asian, and 69 percent male. As Bloomberg notes, those figures are “in line” with similar disclosures from Google, LinkedIn, and Yahoo.
