Ride-hailing company Lyft has released its first ever workforce diversity report. And it's a bit better than some in the tech industry at not only employing white or Asian men, there's still room for improvement.

Why it matters: The lack of diversity in the tech industry has been a hot topic in Silicon Valley over the last couple of years. And while Lyft has generally enjoyed a positive public image as far as its business practices, this report shows that it nevertheless faces challenges similar to the rest of the Valley.
