Apple Inc. takes steps to remove the gap between the two genders.

Apple Inc. said that in the past one year it has hired over 11,000 women globally. This number is 65% more than the previous year. This was done to boost employee diversity.
 
"In the first 6 months of this year, nearly 50% of the people we've hired in the U.S. are women, Black, Hispanic or American", CEO Tim Cook mentioned on the company's website.
 
Apple had 92,600 full-time employees as of September 2014.

This initiative was taken up to improve gender and race ratios. Google said in June, 21% of tech hires last year were women, which increases the number of women in technical roles by 1%.
