Twitter, like many other tech companies, is striving to improve diversity in the workplace. It’s an important issue for the firm, which consistently ranks as a diverse platform in terms of its user base. Twitter also boasts a self-professed socially aware CEO in the guise of Jack Dorsey (who can forget the #StayWoke t-shirt he wore on stage at a tech conference in 2016?).

Internally, however, it still hasn’t managed to reflect the inclusiveness found on its service (where conversations around #BlackLivesMatter, #SheInspiresMe and #OrlandoStrong have thrived), although it’s not for want of trying.
