A Google memo has been creating worldwide uproar after it has alleged about the failure of women in top tech jobs due to biological differences between men and women. It comes as a surprise when many of us consider Google as the best place to work.
“We need to stop assuming that gender gaps imply sexism,” he wrote in the piece which was widely criticised. The person who leaked the memo outside which has only been circulating within the company has received many personal messages from fellow Googlers expressing their gratitude.
The memo posted states that “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”. The person who has leaked it has remained unanimous and said women generally “prefer jobs in social or artistic areas” while “more men may like coding”.
Danielle Brown,the head of diversity, Google said “the heated debate over the issue had compelled her to say a few words. Diversity and inclusion are a fundamental part of our values and the culture we continue to cultivate. We are unequivocal in our belief that diversity and inclusion are critical to our success as a company, and we’ll continue to stand for that and be committed to it for the long haul.”
The article which was published on a tech website also quotes her as saying “not a viewpoint that I or this company endorses, promotes or encourages.”
