US media: Google fires defender of tech gender gap

But he won't have to be worried about being unemployed for long, as Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has offered him a job in a series of tweets. "Censorship is for losers", Julian Assange tweeted, and said WikiLeaks would be offering Damore a job. The news services say Damore confirmed the dismissal by email.

Google CEO Sunder Pichai has reportedly cut his vacation short to deal with the crisis over the anti-diversity memo.

The manifesto spread like wildfire across Google after at least eight employees started tweeting about it late last week.

"The memo has clearly impacted our co-workers, some of whom are hurting and feel judged based on their gender". In his case, it led to his firing.

In response, Google has fired Damore. "It's your peers writing feedback on your work". Google's leadership told its employees that Damore crossed a line and advanced harmful stereotypes, according to an email seen by Reuters.

Close to 70 per cent of Google's total staff is male, while men make up 80 per cent of its technical workforce.

Google, which has used the motto "Don't be evil", received accolades from many quarters for treating Damore's memo as a threat to its corporate culture.

Of note, the memo comes as Google fends off a lawsuit from the U.S. Department of Labor alleging the company systemically discriminates against women.

The new Google logo is displayed at the Google headquarters on September 2, 2015 in Mountain View, California.

His departure capped a rocky period for the global ridesharing giant, which has been roiled by disturbing reports of cutthroat workplace conditions, harassment and discrimination.

As for the author's feeling that their views couldn't be discussed openly, Zunger called the author's views "fundamentally corrosive" to any organization.

Recode, Bloomberg and other media outlets on Monday reported that the author of the controversial internal document was fired.

Google was under a lot of pressure to do something.

The anti-diversity memo was sent out Friday to more than 40,000 Google employees.

Following it's agreement with the Russians Federal Anti-Monopoly Service, Chrome will now bring up a prompt for it's Russian users to choose between Yandex, Google, and Mail.ru. In the memo he asserted there are biological causes behind gender inequality in the tech industry.

At times, the author appears to take conflicting positions. The memo also accused Google of hushing conservative political opinions, which resulted in shortcomings in ideological diversity.

An individual using the name "Mr. Smith" posted a fresh cache of stolen HBO files, including some apparently related to the show "Game of Thrones", online Monday.
