Google is Planning to Spend $150 Million to Make Its Workforce More Diverse

If there's one consistent complaint about Silicon Valley, it's that all the people working there tend to look remarkably similar. Google, one of the largest employers in the value, is planning to change that. The company is committing to spend $150 million in 2015 to recruit more women and minorities, according to an interview Google's vice president of people operations gave to USA Today.
Nancy Lee, Google's vice president of people operations, told the paper that the money is part of a broader program aimed at changing the company to better reflect its consumers.
Even that gain is more than double the amount it will spend on diversity efforts.
