Surprise: Google doesn’t make the top 10 best companies for gender diversity in tech

Not on the list.

It’s been a tough week for diversity in tech.

Former Google engineer James Damore’s memo has ignited a pointless debate about whether or not women are inherently less capable of careers as software engineers. With the memo treated among many as a legitimate piece of scientific analysis, it can be discouraging for those who see it as manipulating scientific studies to support a flawed and problematic premise.

The whole situation was reflective of larger problems with gender and racial diversity throughout Silicon Valley. Even at companies where engineers aren’t circulating arguments for why their employers should dismantle diversity programs, these ideas are pervasive.

So it’s convenient that the jobs site Comparably has a new report out this week ranking Silicon Valley employers by how they’re doing at diversity. When it comes to gender, Google does not make the top 10 (although the company is one of the top ranked for racial diversity).

Top 10 companies by gender diversity:

  1. Salesforce

  2. Adobe

  3. Intuit

  4. T-Mobile

  5. LinkedIn

  6. Accenture

  7. PayPal

  8. Workday

  9. Apple

  10. Facebook

Top 10 companies by racial diversity:

  1. VMWare

  2. Disney

  3. LinkedIn

  4. Salesforce

  5. Intuit

  6. Google

  7. T-Mobile

  8. Dell

  9. Facebook

  10. Symantec

The rankings are determined by how these companies’ own underrepresented employees rate their experiences at work. So it’s not about the numbers in diversity reports, where Google, for example, is 56 percent white and 69 percent male, but about the experiences women and people of color actually have once they’re in the front door.

Comparably then gives a score to each company and ranks them as compared to companies in the same industry and metro area. The scores look like this, with Google as a helpful example:

Responses were gathered over several months and through August 2017, so these are recent answers.

Another report for Googleand its peersto keep in mind as they deal with the fallout of one engineer’s manifesto.
