Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From 9to5mac.com: “Apple's CEO Tim Cook addresses lack of women in tech, EarPods sales, and AR future”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Yesterday, Apple’s CEO Tim Cook met the class of all-female founders at the company’s first Foundations program in the UK. As he shared on Twitter, “these developers are on their way to making and achieving extraordinary things.”

While doing so, Cook also gave an interview to the BBC where he said that there’s “no good excuse” for the lack of women in tech, and later teased an AR future.

In the interview, Apple’s CEO Tim Cook says the technology “will not achieve nearly what it could achieve” without a diverse workforce.

“I think the essence of technology and its effect on humanity depends upon women being at the table. Technology’s a great thing that will accomplish many things, but unless you have diverse views at the table that are working on it, you don’t wind up with great solutions,” said Cook in the interview.

In addition to promoting Foundation programs, Apple is also trying to lead the way. In its 2021 annual report of diversity figures, 35% of the company’s staff in the US is composed of women. The Cupertino company has five female executives in its 22 leadership roles.
