By the end of this year, there will be 11 professions with new emoji for both men and women across a variety of skin tones.
The new empjis will include farmers, welders, mechanics, health workers, scientists, coders, business workers, chefs, students, teachers, and rock stars, reports Fortune.com. The push for gender-balanced emojis comes shortly after a group of Google employees asked for emojis to become less male-centric.
“There aren’t a lot (of emojis) that highlight the diversity of women’s careers, or empower young girls,” the company said in a statement. The new emojis include all different skin tones, Google said.
