Square, Inc. released a diversity report last week, detailing rates of minority identity among employees--including sexual orientation, gender identity, veteran status, and more. From the repot: "We’re obviously not the first to share diversity data publicly. Our goal in releasing this report is to contribute to a conversation about inclusion and diversity that goes beyond metrics—which is why our report includes an analysis of our employees as they self-identify and information on employee retention and satisfaction. Inclusion is an often-overlooked tenet of building a diverse workforce. It is our commitment to current and potential employees to create an environment where all feel both represented and supported.
Our results regrettably don’t look much different from others in the technology and finance industries."
