SAN FRANCISCO - Google's workforce is still dominated by white and Asian men even after the Internet company hired a woman to fill one out of every five of its openings for computer programmers and other high-paying technology jobs last year.

The ongoing lack of diversity emerged in a demographic breakdown that Google released Monday.

Just 18 percent of Google's technology jobs were held by women entering 2015, up a percentage point from the previous year. The rest of them were filled by men who were mostly white or Asian.

The latest snapshot of Google's workforce comes roughly a year after Google publicly disclosed the gender and ethnic makeup of its payroll for the first time to cast spotlight on a diversity problem vexing the entire technology industry.
