On Tuesday, Facebook released its annual diversity report with a mighty claim. For the first time in three years, the company said it actually increased its proportion of black employees, from two per cent to three per cent. But here's the thing: Facebook hasn't released the hard numbers that would actually prove that. By omitting this crucial data, Facebook's cheerful, easy-to-read diversity report fails to truly increase transparency or company accountability -- and obscures information that could provide real insights into how minorities fare in the tech world.
