MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. (AP) - Google has barely raised the number of women and under-represented minorities among its ranks, while it got less white and more Asian over the past year.

That's according to the search giant's fifth annual diversity report released Thursday.

The report comes a week after shareholders voted down proposals to study linking executive pay to diversity goals.

Google bumped the percentage of its female employees up by a tenth of a percentage point to 30.9 percent.

Despite falling more than 2 percent, white workers remained the majority, while Asians grew more than a percentage point to 36.3 percent. Black and Latino workers grew a tenth of a percent to 2.5 and 3.6 percent.

Google is part of Alphabet Inc., which employs about 85,000 people.
