summary

    (1) I will clearly demonstrate that the large tech companies lack diversity in employment.

    (2) I will recommend a simple method to prove that the lack of diversity is technologically unsound.

    (3) I will suggest ways that you can help support my efforts to prove that the large tech companies should have diversity in employment.

lack of diversity

    The large tech companies lack diversity in employment.

    All of the big tech companies loudly proclaim that they actively support diversity in emplyment, but the actual numbers prove this is a blatant lie.

    Actions speak louder then words.

    It is unambigiously clear that the large tech companies blatantly and actively and strongly discriminate against the outsiders of society.

source of U.S. population data: U.S. Census Bureau 2013

worst of the worst:

    Women: Google and Microsoft 17% (vs. 50.8% in general U.S. population)

    Hispanic: Google 2% (vs. 17.1% in general U.S. population)

    Black: Google 1% (vs. 13.2% in general U.S. population)

    Multi-racial: ebay and Microsoft 1% (vs. 9.1% in general U.S. population)

    If you believe that actions speak louder words, when Google and Microsoft have minorities at rates of less than 10% (that is, 900% discrimination against minorities), their claims that they are doing everything they can to be diverse and fair in employment are obvious unmitigated corporate lies.
