Democrat Grills Mark Zuckerberg on How Many LGBTQ Employees Work on High-Profile Project

Rep. Al Green (D-TX) pressed Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on how many women, minorities, and those belonging to the LGBTQ community are currently a part of a high-profile project. Zuckerberg said he does not know the exact number of people that represent each of the categories Green list.

Green asked Zuckerberg about the representation in regards to Facebook's proposed blockchain digital currency, Libra, when he testified to Congress on Wednesday.

"Congressman, the association is made, to date, of 21 companies and non-profit organizations, as well," Zuckerberg explained.

"Of the 21, how many are headed by women?” Green asked. 

“Congressman, I do not know the answer to that off the top of my head, but I can get it for you," Zuckerberg replied.

"Well I believe you can get it, Mr. Zuckerberg, but one would assume that you would know who heads these corporations that are going to be running this global company," Green said. "How many of them are minorities, Mr. Zuckerberg?”

“Congressman, I — I do not know off the top of my head," he replied.

"Are there any members of the LGBTQ+ community associated with this association, Mr. Zuckerberg?” Green then asked.

“Congressman, I — I don’t know the answer," Zuckerberg said.

Green asked if it's true "that the overwhelming majority of persons associated with this endeavor are white men?”

Zuckerberg again replied that he did not know the exact number of white men who worked on Libra.

Companies involved with Libra include Visa, Mastercard, Paypal, Lyft and Uber.
