When Uber let go of thousands of workers as part of pandemic-related layoffs earlier this year, it led to a decline in overall Black representation within its workforce, the company said in its annual diversity report on Friday.

(CNN Business)When Uber let go of thousands of workers as part of pandemic-related layoffs earlier this year, it led to a decline in overall Black representation within its workforce, the company said in its annual diversity report on Friday.

Those layoffs included thousands of its customer support employees, which resulted in a noticeable dent in Black representation at Uber, underscoring how the diverse team helped buoy the company's overall metric.

Women in leadership rose to 32. 4%, up from 28% one year prior, in Uber's global workforce; Black leadership in the US is up to 4. 1% from 3. 3% -- a step in the right direction towards the company's recently announced goal to double representation in this area by 2025.

The company said it is focused on increasing women in leadership roles and its overall representation of Black and Hispanic/Latinx employees.
