Storm at Google over engineer’s anti-diversity manifesto

Claims jobs

Google executives have responded to a 3,300-word manifesto written by one of its male engineers that argues women aren’t suited for tech jobs for “biological” reasons.

The document has been circulating inside Google ( GOOG ) for some time, but it was made public by Motherboard on Saturday. Recode and Gizmodo published the document in full.

Over the weekend, Google diversity vice president Danielle Brown and engineering VP Ari Balogh addressed the controversial document in separate messages to Google employees.

Brown and Balogh condemned the document’s assertions and defended Google’s diversity efforts.

The issue immediately ignited a fierce debate on social media.

The author, who has not been identified by CNN Tech, is reportedly a rank-and-file software engineer at Google ( GOOG ) . He contended that Google doesn’t have more female engineers because men have a “higher drive for status.”

He argued that the company’s diversity programs — including seminars that teach young girls coding skills — are “highly politicized.” The diversity work, he said, “alienates non-progressives.” He also said he believes that Google’s commitment to hire more women stands to make the company less competitive, and that the gender wage gap is a myth.

The author wrote that higher rates of anxiety disorders among women may explain why there are “lower numbers of women in high stress jobs.”

But Balogh, the engineering boss, said such “stereotyping” that is “deeply troubling” and “harmful.”

Diversity VP Brown, who was hired just weeks ago, wrote a lengthier response.

“Part of building an open, inclusive environment means fostering a culture in which those with alternative views, including different political views, feel safe sharing their opinions,” Brown wrote.

But, she said, “like many of you, I found that [the document] advanced incorrect assumptions about gender.”

“[I]t’s not a viewpoint that I or this company endorses, promotes or encourages,” Brown said.

Yonatan Zunger, a former senior engineer who recently left the company, responded in a Medium post.

“Despite speaking very authoritatively, the author does not appear to understand gender,” he wrote. “Perhaps more interestingly, the author does not appear to understand engineering.”

Parisa Tabriz, an engineering director at Google, called the manifesto “harmful.”

Inclusion is not a zero-sum game. Making your team or organization a more inclusive place for X does not mean discrimination against not X

Another Twitter user, who identifies herself as a programmer, said she is considering leaving the company if Google’s human resources “does nothing.”

Former Google engineer Erica Baker, who gained attention in 2014 for her Medium posts about diversity, responded to the latest controversy, saying she’s “disappointed but unsurprised.”

“This is not entirely new behavior. . What is new is that this employee felt safe enough to write and share an 8 page sexist screed, internally,” Baker wrote.

Under the heading “Reply to public response and misrepresentation” — the screed’s author insists that he is “not denying that sexism exists,” and he doesn’t “endorse using stereotypes.”

Google — like most large Silicon Valley firms — has long grappled with stubbornly low rates of non-white and non-male workers.

An annual diversity report the company made public in June showed that about 69% of its total workforce is male, and 56% of all employees are white.

Google leadership has for years publicly expressed the desire to increase diversity in its workforce.

Manager at Via Italia in Glasgow resigns following staff intimidation claims

Claims manager jobs

Campaign group scores another victory by exposing manager who bullied staff members

THE MANAGER of an Italian restaurant in Glasgow has resigned following claims he was bullying female staff members.

Giuliano Delia resigned from Via Italia after the company received complaints about its former manager.

Worker’s rights group Better than Zero (BtZ) posted a detailed account from someone who attended a trial period with Via Italia.

They claimed to witness Delia intimidating staff members who alleged they were scared of him.

“Bullying, intimidation and belittling is not acceptable in any situation.” Better Than Zero

The female making the allegation through BtZ wrote: “Bullying, intimidation and belittling is not acceptable in any situation.

“When you have young girls at 18/19 years old too scared to say anything because they’re terrified for their jobs so they put up with it, that’s absolutely heartbreaking and something needs to be done about it.”

Following BtZ’s post, the restaurant posted a statement which said: “After an internal investigation following today’s comments on social media, the company of Via Italia would like to state that the manager in question no longer works for Via Italia and has resigned with immediate effect.”

The post received praise from customers who were shocked at his actions.

CommonSpace spoke to Bryan Simpson from BtZ, who told us that although he was happy Delia had been removed from his position, BtZ hopes to sit down with Via Italia to ensure there are no future cases of staff intimidation.

Simpson said: “The victory at Via Italia shows what workers coming together can do to change a bullying culture.

“However, we are still looking to meet with the owners of Via Italia to put together a comprehensive anti-harassment policy to ensure that it never happens again.”

BtZ said it has contacted the owners of Via Italia to discuss it proposals, but has yet to receive a reply.

“The victory at Via Italia shows what workers coming together can do to change a bullying culture.” Better Than Zero

Speaking about the effect BtZ now has, Simpson said it was essential for people to know their rights in cases where bullying and unfair practices were common place.

Following the post on social media about Via Italia, BtZ has been in contact with eight employees of the restaurant to give them advice.

“It wasn’t all down to BtZ, it (Delia’s removal) was also thanks to everyone who shared the post and put it out. We have been in to speak to the workers, and are currently getting them into a union.

“Although we are very relieved he has been removed, we want to ensure long-term protection.”

Via Italia has two restaurants in Glasgow, one on Union Street close to Central Station and another on Sauchiehall Street.

We spoke to Via Italia, but the restaurant declined to comment.

Look at how important CommonSpace has become, and how vital it is for the future #SupportAReporter

Conclusion

Filling the position of claims manager will provide an individual with interesting work on a daily basis.

Jason Orange blamed Take That for ruining his life, claims former manager, claims manager jobs.#Claims


Jason Orange blamed Take That for ruining his life, claims former manager

H e rejoined the Nineties boy band that made his name for their successful 2006 reunion, only to leave again in 2014, claiming that he no longer wanted to continue his music career. But Jason Orange, seen by many (perhaps unfairly) as one of the less-than-essential members of Take That, was allegedly never that keen on being in the group at all.

“When I put Jason in the band he loved it, but he turned around years later and said he was upset with me,” his former manager Nigel Martin-Smith, who put together the original Take That line-up, told the Daily Star.

“He said he couldn’t sing, he wasn’t a musician and I had no right to put him in the band. He wanted to know why I did it to him. He said he had loads of issues as a result of it and seemed to blame me for ruining his life. I couldn’t believe it.”

M artin Smith also suggested that he considers Orange ungrateful, adding: “I said ‘Jay, you’ve travelled the world first class, stayed in five-star hotels, had women throwing themselves at you, had the most amazing life, with how many millions in the bank.’ It must have been so horrible for him. That’s how bizarre it is.”

W hen he quit the band in 2014, leaving members Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald to continue as a trio, Orange insisted that his relations with the remaining Take That members were still amicable.

“There have been no fallings out, only a decision on my part that I no longer wish to do this, he said at the time. I know how much Mark, Gary and Howard enjoy writing and making music, and they know that they have my full support and encouragement to continue on with what is to be another chapter for the band.”

O range previously told the Sunday Times, in a 2011 interview, that he felt robbed by his first stint with the group in the Nineties.

I think every person’s job either feeds them or takes from them, he said. Take That, for me, the first time, took from me. It gave me money, it gave me a standard of living, but it robbed me of my voice.

To come back as an older adult, on my guard a bit and wiser, I know it sounds melodramatic, but it’s like there’s this thing up there, and we can all give to it and get back from it, and it shines into us, and we can all grow from it

Or it will just rob us again, and we’ll leave with all this s— that we didn’t say or didn’t do.

P rior to joining Take That, Orange worked as a decorator by day and a dancer by night , performing in clubs and on television as part of a Manchester breakdancing group, alongside fellow future band member Howard Donald.

It’s no secret that his impressive dancing ability – coupled with his famous good looks and muscled physique – played a bigger part in securing his spot in the group than his self-confessedly modest singing skills.

My biggest insecurity has always been, what do I contribute to the band? I don’t really write music or understand it like they [the other bandmembers] do, he said in 2005.
