Facebook shared an update Thursday on its efforts to better support communities of color, women, members of the LGBTQ+ community and others through education, employment and increasing economic opportunities.

The company set three goals to increase representation in its workforce by 2024:

  • Double the number of women employees globally and double the number of Black and Hispanic employees in the U.S.
  • Have at least 50% of the company’s workforce comprised of women globally, and underrepresented minorities, people with two or more ethnicities, people with disabilities and veterans in the U.S.
