Shale Giant Marathon Says It’s Increasing Workforce Diversity

Marathon Oil Corp. said it’s actively increasing the diversity of its workforce in an industry long dominated by white men.

Female workers now comprise 33% of the shale explorer’s staff, while people of color occupy 30% of Marathon’s jobs, executives said during a conference call with analysts and investors on Thursday. Both figures are up from 25% five years ago.
