Yahoo! Inc. revealed its workforce is less than 40 percent 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 percent of its leaders -- defined as vice presidents or higher -- are men, according to the report yesterday. Women make up 15 percent of the technically focused positions and have 52 percent of the jobs in non-technical posts. Almost 90 percent of Yahoo’s U.S. workforce is white or Asian.
