Multi-million dollar social media giant just can't seem to get it right.

Facacebook is among many multi-million corporations that struggles with diversifying its workforce.

Forbes reports that Williams told the Wall Street Journal that "it has become clear that at the most fundamental level, appropriate representation in technology or any other industry will depend upon more people having the opportunity to gain necessary skills through the public education system."
