Pinterest released its annual diversity report for 2018 Monday, and it followed the same theme as similar endeavors from other tech companies: We’ve made progress, but “we still have a long way to go.”

The company met two of its three hiring goals for 2018 and just missed the third.

Its goal was to increase hiring rates for people from underrepresented ethnic backgrounds in non-engineering roles to 12 percent, and the company exceeded that goal and reached 14 percent.

Pinterest fell just short of its goal to increase hiring rates for engineers from underrepresented ethnic backgrounds to 8 percent, coming in at 7 percent.
