  • The number of entry level positions filled by people of color is up 5%, while mid-level positions are up 8% and senior level slots are up 5%.
  • Black talent increased by 9% overall across U.S. operations at every career stage, but most notably at a senior level, where Black talent rose by 26%, to 2.4%, off a small base.
  • At all career levels Blacks represented 5.9% of the U.S. workforce as of May 20th, up from 5.4% last June. The comparable numbers for Hispanics/Latinos are 8.3% up from 8.1% and 15.4% up from 15.1% for Asians.
