Men also dominate tech roles at eBay, occupying 76% of those positions.

Women make up 49% of non-tech roles and 42% of the company’s total workforce.

When it comes to ethnic diversity 61% of the company’s US workforce is white, 24% are Asian, 7% black and 5% are Hispanic. Multi-racial and other make up 1% each.

LinkedIn’s leaders are predominantly white (72%), while 23% are Asian.

The majority of its tech workforce is Asian, representing 55%, while 40% are white, 2% are black and 2% Hispanic, with multiracial or other making up the final 2%.

“As a leader in commerce and digital payments, we take diversity seriously,” LinkedIn said in a statement.

 “As our data shows, we have made progress in some areas. But we still have much work to do.”

“We believe sustained commitment can make a demonstrable difference. We will continue to strive for progress and a stronger, better, more diverse eBay.”
