It's not really the companies' fault. They hide people who major in computer science or engineering. The people who happen to be majoring in computer science and engineering are white and Asian males. If you want a job in the the the tech field you should probably major in something related to tech.
What's interesting is that Twitter is based in the bay area and has a diversity problem. Bay Area is one of the biggest areas with the most diversity. I live in the Bay Area and each city has it's major ethnicity and we're saturated with tech companies that anyone from any race can apply; however, I agree with you Thomas, the tech industry doesn't have a lot of diverse ethnicities in this field because they're not looking to have a career in this industry. Bay Area may have a lot of tech companies, but we have a lot of other industries here as well (Business, Automotive, Health Care...)
Yeah. As long as companies hire the best person for the job, diversity shouldn't be an issue. it's not tech companies' fault that the majority of qualified workers are from a certain demographic.
I'm sorry, but I could care less about diversity when it comes to being capable for the job. If there happens to be more white males who are capable and requesting a position, that's just how it is.
There's only a problem if they are specifically singling out other races or females.
