Tech companies are finally spilling some of their most sought-after secrets. No, not related to their R&D. I’m referring instead to other tightly guarded information they once declared “trade secrets:” data about the number of women and minorities on their payrolls. After years of trying to deflect attention from the issue, Google blogged in May about the diversity, or lack thereof, of its staff, acknowledging that just 17 percent of its tech employees are female and 5 percent are black or Hispanic.
