Google CEO Pichai Cancels Gender Dispute Meeting

Goolag Search Damore: I Was Fired for 'Perpetuating Gender Stereotypes'
Montez Delgado | 13 Agosto, 2017, 16:41

Damore was sacked days after the memo went viral online. I've already had my say in Wednesday's USA Today on how existing federal law would have helped shape Google's incentives in handling that furor.

That prompts a larger question of the limits of Google's power, and not just within the cult compound from which Damore got exiled this week. While allowing some of the requests to go forward in pared-down form, the ALJ drastically cut back their scope and said the agency "OFCCP offered nothing credible or reliable to show that its theory ... is based ... on anything more than speculation".

As controversy continues to swirl around James Damore, the Google engineer who was sacked after writing a memo about gender diversity at the company, the longtime New York Times columnist David Brooks has placed blame squarely on the shoulders of Google CEO Sundar Pichai.

Sundar Pichai, the company's chief executive officer stated that the letter went against some of Google's code of conduct of conduct.

Milo Yiannopoulos, a known provocateur and former editor at Breitbart News, posted a photo showing the Twitter profiles of eight Google employees, including Brown, who spoke out publicly against the memo. "Clearly there's a lot more to discuss as a group, including how we create a more inclusive environment for all", Pichai added. Damore was sacked on Monday.

Damore focused on the idea of shame in his op-ed.

My objective here instead is to relate another Google bias-claims-and-employee-privacy story from last month, which would have counted as fairly significant news in its own right had it not soon been eclipsed by the memo episode.

Google is a particularly intense echo chamber because it is in the middle of Silicon Valley and is so life-encompassing as a place to work. That reignited concerns that internal discussions would not stay private.

"Googlers are writing in, concerned about their safety and anxious they may be "outed" publicly for asking a question in the Town Hall", Pichai told employees, explaining his decision to cancel the all-hands meeting.

During an interview with a far-right YouTube personality on Tuesday, Damore stood by his memo.

One of the company's female employees sent out a tweet stating that she might resign if the management failed to take action against the author of the memo. Many Google employees recoiled at the document after he shared it more widely last week.

In 2015 the U.S. Department of Labor launched a contract-compliance review of Google's employment practices related to diversity. Introduced as evidence in a lawsuit brought by a former employee alleging that Google's confidentiality agreements were illegal, the email was telling because it highlighted the importance of open discussion at the company as well as its potential perils.
