Over 60 women consider suing Google over discrimination

His Harvard Ph.D. aside, Damore's rant argued that "gender gaps [do not always] imply sexism" as well as that "discriminating just to increase the representation of women in tech" is "misguided and biased" and "unfair, divisive, and bad for business".
ELLIS: For me, it's unfortunately completely unsurprising because I saw similar language when I was at Google. The lesson from Intel, Brown explained when she was that company's diversity czar, was: Public pressure and scrutiny makes goals more real. If the opposite decision had been made, you'd expect those on the left of the political spectrum to react in a similar fashion. Damore was sacked from Google on Monday for violating the company's code of conduct.
A 3,000-word document was circulated inside the company in recent days fuelling an ongoing debate about the treatment of women in Silicon Valley.
To be clear, companies in the private sector don't have to adhere to the first amendment, the right to free speech, and therefore the software engineer in question doesn't have a leg to stand on if this is a legal route he chooses to pursue. I wanted to provide an update on the memo that was circulated over this past week. "We all need to do more".
Michael Willemin, a plaintiff's lawyer with employment firm Wigdor, also said Damore would have a hard time bringing a retaliation claim based on the idea that his memo constituted a complaint about discrimination against men.
Oookay. So a Google software engineer writes about how, on average, women are subject to "higher anxiety" and "lower stress tolerance", which caused several women at Google to feel so stressed and anxious that they had to stay home from work. While there are 20 percent women in tech in Google in 2017 as compared to a mere 17 percent in 2014, only one in four women hold leadership roles. In this sense, Pichai also wrote a memoaddressed to all employees.
Former Google engineer James Damore is a 2010 graduate of the University of IL. He's trying to do good, but all that comes out is utter codswallop.
"The real issue was what would have happened if they didn't fire him?"
The confusion has only grown as politics has become hyper-polarized and social media has given employees platforms to broadcast their views to the world. We only visit the sites we want and follow the people we want to hear from.
"If we can't have an honest discussion about this, then we can never truly solve the problem".
Yet his supporters may be overlooking what ethics and human-resources experts say is a major flaw with his manifesto: Rather than seeking out productive ways of discussing his views with the company's management, the memo "reads like the condemnation of an entire system", as Donovan noted.
Molyneux's previous videos have titles such as "Why Feminists Hate Men: What They Won't Tell You!" Educate them. Provide evidence. The post went to the extent of saying that women in the same position as men were paid less not due to any bias but because of inherent psychological differences between the genders.
Google has repeatedly denied the gender discrimination allegations detailed in the Labor Department case. And to lose a job like that simply because of a misjudged and misguided memo isn't really the right way to go.
