Yahoo pips Google with 37% females in workforce

Yahoo! has revealed that its workforce is less than 40% female and that many of the women are in non-leadership roles, in the Web portal’s first such disclosure amid a Silicon Valley debate over diversity. Yahoo said 77% of its leaders – defined as vice-presidents or higher – are men, according to the report on Wednesday. Women make up 15% of the technically focused positions and have 52% of the jobs in non-technical posts. Almost 90% of Yahoo’s US workforce is white or Asian. The Sunnyvale, California-based company, one of the few led by a female chief executive officer, Marissa Mayer, is disclosing the make-up of its staff after similar reports by Google and LinkedIn Corp in the last few weeks.
