Despite spending millions of dollars on workplace diversity programs and outreach, companies today are most often left with little to show for it. Research has found that most workplace diversity programs fail to produce meaningful results, and some have actually increased bias among individual employees. As of 2017, nearly 75% of those in computing and mathematical fields were men and fewer than 15% were black or Hispanic. Currently, just 20% of C-suite executives in the U.S. are female. Just 3% of C-suite roles are held by Asian, black, Latina or other women of color.
