Google Engineer Said “Women Aren’t Fit For Tech Jobs”! Sundar Pichai Fired Him

| Published on August 9, 2017

Free speech is allowed in the world but not at the cost of Gender Discrimination. At the age where people speak of Gender Equality and there’s a lot of feminism talk going around, it’s not at all wise to discriminate women on her abilities just because of her gender.

At least Google showed that they don’t allow such things. A memo written by a male engineer at Google about gender differences sparked the flames and immediately went viral online. The engineer, James Damore, was fired, according to reports as soon as Google Ceo Sundar Pichai got an eye on this Gender Stereotype.

The engineer’s widely shared memo, titled “Google’s Ideological Echo Chamber,” saying that women aren’t fit for any kind of technical jobs. It was a 10-page memo stating how female are different from the male. He stated that women are not fit in a technologically based workplace not only because of face bias but due to inborn psychological differences between the two genders.

“We need to stop assuming that gender gaps imply sexism,” he writes, going on to argue that Google’s educational programs for young women may be misguided.

As per reports, Danielle Brown, Google’s new vice president for diversity, integrity, and governance, came to know about it as soon as it went viral and he made it clear that Google believes in diversity in work environment. A meeting was immediately called where people said that they would not like to work with the engineer further and also supported firing of the author.

Sundar Pichi said,

“violate our Code of Conduct and cross the line by advancing harmful gender stereotypes in our workplace.”

Though the news about firing is not confirmed yet the engineer himself revealed that his role in Google is terminated!

Google, like other tech companies, has far fewer women than men in technology and leadership positions. Fifty-six percent of its workers are white and 35 percent are Asian, while Hispanic and Black employees make up 4 percent and 2 percent of its workforce, respectively, according to the company’s latest diversity report.
