Diversity Memo Writer Got Fired By Google

Just few moments back BBC has confirmed the sack of the Google’s employee who wrote a memo on diversity among Google’s employees.

Google’s Chief Executive Sundar Pichai threw an email to all his employees on Monday mentioning the controversial memo has broken the firm’s code of conduct.

During the weekend, the memo was spread suggested there were fewer women at Google due to biological difference.

Mr Pichai said the text crossed the line due to it “advancing harmful gender stereotypes in our workplace.”

“The abilities of men and women differ in part due to biological causes and that these differences may explain why we don’t see equal representation of women in tech and leadership”, argues by the paper, entitled Google’s Ideological Echo Chamber.

The author wrote, “We need to stop assuming that gender gaps imply sexism”.

Google’s head of diversity, Danielle Brown criticized the memo once it was open to all. But the author’s identity is hidden by Google. Even though he wrote that he received, “many personal messages from fellow Googlers expressing their gratitude”.

In that email sent by Mr. Pichai was also mentioned, “much of what was in that memo is fair to debate, regardless of whether a vast majority of Googlers disagree with it. To suggest a group of our colleagues, have traits that make them less biologically suited to that work is offensive and not OK.

It is contrary to our basic values and our Code of Conduct, which expects ‘each Googler to do their utmost to create a workplace culture that is free of harassment, intimidation, bias and unlawful discrimination’.”
