Anti-diversity advocates are organizing a "march on Google"

Dozens Of Female Employees Accuse Google Of Gender Discrimination

Dozens Of Female Employees Accuse Google Of Gender Discrimination

The gathering which was meant to address gender discrimination on Thursday after employee questions for management began to leak online from the company's internal messaging service has been unavoidably canceled.

Still dealing with the anti-diversity memo controversy, Google CEO Sundar Pichai addressed the issue at a coding event for girls, assuring them of the importance of women in tech jobs.

Mr. Pichai said a "vast majority" of the emails he had received supported the decision to fire Mr. Damore but he noted that some employees had raised concerns about being unable to speak freely.

The questions that were planned by "Googlers" appeared externally this afternoon and some employees are being named on "some websites", CEO Sundar Pichai said in an email sent to employees. "Googlers are writing in, concerned about their safety and anxious they may be "outed" publicly for asking a question". According to ZeroHedge, one popular question was how the company plans to protect female employees who face online harassment for criticizing the memo, while another seeks to learn if Google lowers the bar for diverse candidates. In an interview with Stefan Molyneux, the software engineer said he was "smeared" by company executives after tech publications like Recode, Mashable, and Gizmodo misrepresented his memo as a "sexist manifesto", among a host of other unflattering descriptors. A number of employees said the memo was offensive and proved that Google still had work to do in terms of diversity.

In late June, Google announced the hiring of Danielle Brown as its new head of diversity.

Looking at who works for Google, it all makes sense now...

20 injured in blast near Band Road in Lahore
A spokesman for the Lahore electric supply company said the high-intensity blast badly damaged the circuit of the grid station. He went on to note that an investigation has been launched on determining how and when the vehicle arrived at the blast site.

"We always ask why we don't see women in top leadership positions, but we never ask why we see so many men in these jobs", the essay reads.

Inside Google, the memo and its fallout represent perhaps the biggest setback to what has been a foundational premise for employees: the freedom to speak up about anything and everything.

In an email seen by Reuters on Thursday, Google Chief Executive Sundar Pichai said some company employees were being named personally on websites in relation to the incident."Googlers are writing in, concerned about their safety and anxious they may be "outed" publicly for asking a question in the Town Hall", Pichai wrote.

Ex-Google engineer James Damore says problems with the company's culture prompted him to write the memo on gender differences that ignited a social media firestorm and led to his dismissal.

The firing occurred while Google is embroiled in a legal dispute with the US Department of Labor over whether it pays female staff a fair wage.

Damore's manifesto spurred a lot of outrage inside the company, with many employees requesting his termination for his views.
