Tesla released their 2020 Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Impact Report for U.S. operations last week showing that Asian Americans make up more than 20% of their workforce and management, far more than any other underrepresented community.
Tesla’s latest numbers seem to challenge these notions. Asian employees are now 21% of Tesla’s U.S. workforce. Even more, 25% of director positions and higher management are Asian.
Tesla’s report also notes that 20% of new hires are Asian while 23% of promotions at the company are also Asian, 15% higher than in 2019.
By comparison and based on historical data, Black, Hispanic and additional underrepresented communities remain sorely underrepresented in Tesla’s leadership which remains 59% white.
The report also included gender representation, with women making up 21% of the workforce and 17% of Tesla’s leadership. Women make up 23% of promotions at Tesla and 25% of new hires.
