On the one hand, Google insists that “diversity and inclusion are critical to our success as a company.” On the other, a Google engineer’s memo warns that they have created an ideological “echo chamber” and a “shaming culture,” one which keeps employees silent about the impact of company policies because of the “possibility of being fired.” How did Google rebut this memo? By firing the engineer who wrote it, of course.
That didn't take long. I wonder how they tagged him? Anyway, this really frosts me, though it is not in the least surprising. I hope he sues them and hires a publicist. Google will probably settle for a fair chunk of change. They could win the litigation but they don't need the publicity.
