Outrage is growing in Silicon Valley and beyond after a 10-page document written by a senior Google engineer blasted the company’s “left leaning” culture and attributed differences in pay between men and women in tech jobs partly to biological differences between genders.
The document made the rounds within the company on Friday, CNBC reports, and was published in full by Gizmodo.
The essay was titled “Google’s Ideological Echo Chamber.” The engineer’s identity has not been revealed.
This is some amazing racist and bigoted stuff. It’s what Silicon Valley is all about.
“When it comes to diversity and inclusion, Google’s left bias has created a politically correct monoculture that maintains its hold by shaming dissenters into silence,” it reads.
It argues that differences in pay between men and women in the technology sector are not entirely related to bias against women, but are partly attributable to biological differences between the genders, CNBC reports. It also called on Google to “stop alienating conservatives” and calls into question practices like “unconscious bias” training for committees that promote employees.
