#GoodRead | Pinterest misses, then lowers, goal for hiring women in engineering roles
Last year, Pinterest set a series of public goals for its diversity hiring. It announced its intention to hire women for at least 30 percent of the full-time engineering roles that were available in 2016. This week the company announced it missed that target — women only made up 22 percent of the engineer hires — and then decided to lower its hiring goal for 2017.
Sure, why not? It’s still 2016, let’s just continue to lower our expectations for everything. We’re on a roll.
