Netflix’s First Inclusion Report Cites Progress, Acknowledges Need to Improve Recruitment of Hispanics
Netflix, like other tech companies, has regularly published data about the diversity of its workforce since 2013. Now the streamer has released its first “inclusion report,” in which the company details its strategy to improve diversity — and where it has fallen short.
“We’ve made good progress over the last three years. But let’s be clear, we’re not where we want to be and we need to do better,” Vernā Myers, Netflix’s VP of inclusion strategy, said in the report.
Specifically, she said, “We could do a much better job at recruiting Hispanic or Latinx and other underrepresented folks into all areas of our company, particularly our leadership.” Netflix also needs to learn more about how to incorporate inclusion practices outside of the U.S. and also must develop ways to measure inclusion progress that “go beyond charting demographics and hiring goals by looking at the entire employee experience,” Myers said.
