Yahoo! loses! women!

Yahoo!'s most recent bout of layoffs has trimmed down the number of women at its highest levels.

That according to the Purple Palace's 2016 diversity report, which shows that the percentage of women in leadership positions dropped from 24 per cent to 22 per cent.

Overall, Yahoo's percentage of women in its entire workforce held steady at 37 per cent.

The leadership ranks are likely to face further shakeup in the coming months as Verizon moves forward with its plans to assimilate Yahoo, a process that usually includes the departure of top executives. ®
