YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki speaks out on anti-diversity memo

YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki speaks out on anti-diversity memo

A relevant one, in the case of the Google engineer who has been identified in media reports as the memo's author, James Damore, is that the National Labor Relations Act does protect workers who engage in "concerted activities" for their "mutual aid or protection".

Under the doctrine of "at will" employment, she said, "employers can fire workers at any time for any reason as long as it's not an illegal reason".

He already has another job offer. Gab.ai, a far-right social network, also offered Damore a job, calling his writing "a handsome work of art". Assange tweeted his support for Damore from the Ecuadorian embassy in London.

Of course, this kind of shrieking hysteria has immediate practical consequences: Damore has lost his job, and the neurotics who wanted him fired from Google will likely try to ensure that he can't get a job anywhere else, either. But it also asserts that women "prefer jobs in social and artistic areas" while more men "may like coding because it requires systemizing".

You Could Be Depressed If You're Posting Dark and Gray Instagram Pics
The difference between photo filters healthy participants used in the study and what people with depression typically chose. There have been other studies which have examined whether social media can display whether the user is in fact depressed.

Pichai's email was reportedly titled "Our words matter".

"To suggest a group of our colleagues have traits that make them less biologically suited to that work is offensive and not OK", Pichai said in his email to employees.

People on both sides of the debate emerged, speaking out about the role of gender when it comes to working for the tech giant.

It also called on Google to "stop alienating conservatives" and called into question practices like "unconscious bias" training for committees that promote employees. DOL regional director, Janette Wipper, testified in a San Francisco court at the time, "We found systemic compensation disparities against women pretty much across the entire workforce".

The Bavarians are eyeing a sixth straight Bundesliga trophy this year after cruising to top flight victory in the last campaign. We played with good concentration", he said. "Of course the title is important", Ancelotti said.

Apparently his comments struck a nerve with Julian Assange who has also had a few problems with dealing with women who did not see things his way.

While Google has remained steadfast that it does not orchestrate a culture of sexism or intentionally pay women less than men, the lawyer seeking to represent the plaintiffs said that based on their testimony so far, a major disparity is apparent.

Outrage from within and outside the company was swift, with #GoogleManifesto trending on Twitter.

Google's vice president of diversity, Danielle Brown, sent a memo in response to the furor, saying the engineer's essay 'advanced incorrect assumptions about gender'. In fact, Silicon Valley's treatment of women has received a lot of flak, following a string of allegations of harassment and discrimination at large companies such as Uber and at several high-profile venture capital firms.

Vernon Philander recovers from bug as South Africa look to bounce back
He played only a limited part in South Africa's defeat and his absence told with the bowlers misfiring. Then when they dropped it short or tossed it wide, he cut or pulled the ball to the boundary.

"At Google, we're regularly told that implicit (unconscious) and explicit biases are holding women back in tech and leadership", Damore said. She shared a LinkedIn post written by Adam Grant, a professor at Wharton and her co-author on her latest book Option B, where Grant cited research that contradicted Damore's sexist claims. That's something Wojcicki takes on directly, highlighting that while Google is fine with freedom of expression and employees voicing their opinions, there are still responsibilities that come with that freedom.
