Twitter plans to take a page out of the book of social media media corporation pinterest, by fixing some of their issues with the lack of diversity within their company, earlier this year Pinterest hired Paradigm, to give their employees some diversity training.
Today Twitter is a white and male dominated company, with males taking up 78% of all leadership positions and white males specifically taking up 72% of all leadership positions and blacks taking up as little as 2% of Twitter’s workforce.
By 2016 Twitter hopes to increase its female workforce to 35% and increase its underrepresented minorities to an overall 11%.
Twitter also plans to target talent at some historically black colleges.
