Related News The tech industry brought us self-driving cars artificial intelligence and 3-D printers But when it comes to racial and gender diversity its leading companies are no trailblazers Despite loudly touted efforts to hire more blacks Latinos and women especially in technical and leadership positions diversity numbers at the largest tech companies are barely budging Watch all our videos from Express Technology In 2014 2 percent of Googlers were black and 3 percent were Hispanic numbers that have not changed since The picture is similar at Facebook and Twitter Microsoft is slightly more racially diverse (though not when it comes to gender) and Apple even more so though still not reflective of the US population Amazon is more racially diverse still although it counts a large lower-wage warehouse workforce in its totals Women meanwhile make up less than a third of the workforce at many companies even less in engineering and other technical jobs Tech companies themselves tend to blame a “pipeline problem” meaning a shortage of women and minorities with technical qualifications But a number of academic experts industry employees and diversity advocates say there’s a bigger problem Silicon Valley they argue has failed to challenge its own unstated assumptions about what makes for great tech employees “The people who are doing the hiring are not changing their thinking around what they view as qualified” says Leslie Miley engineering director at the message-service startup Slack Hiring managers he says spend too much time worrying that applicants who don’t fit techie stereotypes aren’t “Google-y enough or Facebook-y enough or Apple-y enough or Twitter-y enough” Miley who is African-American previously worked as an engineer at Twitter Apple Google and Yahoo Also Read: US officials checking Facebook profiles of immigrants: Report THE INDUSTRY IS TRYING Companies are spending a lot of time and money on improving diversity Two years ago Intel splashily set itself the goal of achieving full representation in its workforce by 2020 Despite committing $300 million to the effort and making some early progress Intel acknowledges there is “a great deal of work to be done” Similar programs are in place throughout the industry from outreach at high schools and historically black colleges to internship and mentoring programs and sponsorships for coding boot camps So far to little avail Why Interviews with more than 30 tech workers executives and diversity advocates suggest the blame lies with subtle biases in hiring unwelcoming work environments and a paucity of diverse role models in top positions Aniyia Williams founder and CEO of Tinsel poses at the offices of Galvanize in San Francisco Williams says she has made sure to hire women as well as underrepresented minorities (Source: AP) Aniyia Williams founder and CEO of the startup Tinsel says companies should focus on their own culture rather than blaming external factors they can’t control such as limited computer-science education in US schools It’s not enough to release diversity reports and say “Oh not a lot has changed but it’s the world not us that’s the problem”

lawsuit filed against Facebook in the US WHY IT MATTERS Diversity isn’t just about fairness It’s about having designers who reflect the diversity of the people they are designing for For tech companies hoping to reach millions or billions of users a lack of diversity could mean their products “will not appeal to a large population” says Lillian Cassel chairwoman of computer sciences at Villanova University Diverse perspectives can also help prevent grievous errors _ such as a problem that arose at Google in 2015 when a photo-recognition feature misidentified black faces as gorillas Some related missteps: Snapchat released two photo filters that contorted facial features into bucktoothed Asian caricatures or blackface One was later withdrawn after public outcry The other “expired” and the company said it won’t put it back into circulation Airbnb initially took no steps to prevent hosts from discriminating against guests whose profile photos showed they were black The practice was corrected after an outcry Twitter took nearly a decade to tackle the harassment of women and minorities on its service In a New York Times opinion piece Microsoft researcher Kate Crawford urged companies working on artificial intelligence to address diversity warning that otherwise “we will see ingrained forms of bias built into the artificial intelligence of the future” Also Read: Gender bias at workplace may affect manager’s image INTO THE PIPELINE Some 11 percent of computer science graduates were black and 9 percent were Hispanic in the 2013-14 school year according to the

Hispanic Numbers at other tech companies are comparable In 2014 2 percent of Googlers were black and 3 percent were Hispanic numbers that haven’t changed since (Source: AP) Major tech companies have a long tradition of hiring applicants from top-tier universities _ and those universities also have a problem with diversity even if they’re doing slightly better than the companies Some minority applicants meanwhile earn their computer-science chops through community colleges or coding boot camps instead _ places often overlooked by recruiters The few minorities hired into big tech companies can often feel alienated in overwhelmingly white (and sometimes Asian) environments Unsurprisingly they are sometimes reluctant to recommend their employer to friends classmates and former colleagues furthering the cycle of underrepresentation Williams and others say WHEN THE CULTURE DOESN’T FIT Silicon Valley startups like to talk about “culture fit” _ in theory the question of whether a job candidate’s attitude and behavior meshes well with a company In practice though it can mean that since a lot of people are white and male they “hire what they know” says Dave McClure a prominent angel investor in Silicon Valley Larger companies such as Facebook publicly eschew discussions of “fit” although the notion can unwittingly seep into hiring practices For example a 2013 study found that words used in engineering and programming job listings could serve to discourage women from applying Words like “competitive” “dominant” and “leader” can make a job seem less appealing to women in a field that is already male-dominated Some companies including Facebook offer training on “unconscious bias” to combat the problem Not mandatory for all employees (Source: AP) Some companies including Facebook offer training on “unconscious bias” to combat the problem But they don’t make such training mandatory for all employees And once hired people can get lost in the shuffle given the lack of role models and mentors in higher ranks _ and thus find it difficult to advance At many places women and minorities face constant questions about their technical knowledge They can’t help wondering if they would be taken “more seriously” if they were whiter and male Williams says MAKING CHANGE HAPPEN Nancy Lee the Google official in charge of diversity efforts says the gorilla face-recognition incident was a “wake-up call” for the company “We need to include all voices from a multitude of backgrounds and experiences (when it comes to the) technology we create” she says “We firmly believe that good ideas don’t come out of echo chambers” Lee says things are getting better slowly but that it can be “demoralizing” to those working on diversity issues to be pressured to do things quickly “We want to solve this for the long haul” she says But Miley the former Twitter and Google engineer can’t understand why diversifying the industry’s workforce “seems to be such an intractable problem” * “I wonder if it is coming up against…the deep-seated belief that the people in these organizations are special and they want to keep out people who are not special” he says “In our country

publicity Related News Book – Regret: Two Novellas Author – Ikramullah Translation – Faruq Hassan and Mohammad Umar Memon Publisher – Penguin Pages – 192 pages Price – Rs 299 Ikramullah’s two novellas published in translation as Regret (although the book actually includes two novellas Regret and Out of Sight) have been a wonderful discovery for me A major Urdu writer from Pakistan Ikramullah is relatively unknown in India As Muhammad Umar Memon explains in his brief introduction to the book this could perhaps be because Ikramullah himself has chosen to stay out of the glare of publicity Memon describes his attempt to get hold of a photo of the author for the cover of Regret and receiving a blunt reply from him: “Dear Mr Memon I am not in favour of printing an author’s photograph in the book…” In many ways Partition forms the backdrop of both novellas but its presence is not pervasive or even too obvious In Regret the protagonist Saeed looks back on a childhood long ago spent with his school friend Ehsan Running away from school to indulge in innocent pleasures such as walking by the canal watching trains go by splashing in a pond eating mangoes under a tree — and ruminating on life In the course of their wanderings the two young men learn about life they discuss the famine in Bengal learn the secrets of first love discuss men like Rommel and look at the fate of soldiers caught in the war and wander around Company Bagh making guesses at why it is called that (perhaps because a company was once headquartered there is one) The story is told in a strange almost-expressionless deadpan voice with the occasional bit of sarcasm making its presence felt beneath the words When the story opens the two friends are meeting after a long time now as adults with their lives more or less behind them As it closes Ehsan describes his family’s decision to stay on in Pakistan rejecting an offer from a Congress functionary to move to Delhi and then Uttar Pradesh Did you not regret it Saeed asks his friend Not really Ehsan tells him the decision was made firmly although he does think now and again that it would have been nice to see Delhi And that’s all: in that one sentence you have the entire tragedy of Partition as poignant as stories of violence and loss Out of Sight also deals with Partition in an oblique sort of way Here Partition has already taken place but now trouble is brewing some years later between a Pakistani minority the Ahmadiyyas and other Muslims The protagonist Ismail a refugee who managed to escape the violence of Partition and with the help of a good Samaritan was able to make a home set up a small shop and make his life (he loves to read newspapers) looks at present-day Pakistan (of the 1950s) and wonders what went wrong When Jinnah asked for Pakistan for the Muslims he reflects he did not differentiate between legitimate Muslims and those who were out of this category Rather he saw Pakistan as a home for all Muslims and in recognizing him as their Qaid-e-Azam all Muslims no matter which sect they belonged to looked on him as their leader How then did this discrimination and violence towards Ahmadiyyas come about Ismail’s closeness to his friend Bashir an Ahmadiyya is viewed with suspicion by many of his friends Bashir himself faces discrimination in school — why would they want another prophet is the question — and as the story devolves we see the inevitable deroulement towards violence and the endless questions that accompany political discussions about such strife Regret of a sort forms the conclusion of this novella too The direct clear non-gimmicky tone of the telling (occasional shades of Mantoesque satire also creep in) mark these novellas as both somewhat old-fashioned and eminently readable
