Discontents in Googlestan Share Anti-Diversity Document

Written by Joe Scudder

The anti-diversity post points out that women and minorities don’t often specialize in tech fields.

The anti-diversity document is actually pro-diversity because it challenges Google to allow ideological diversity instead of enforcing the Silicon Valley’s cult of Leftism. I doubt anything will come of it because the intoleristas running Google think that diversity only means hiring more women and minorities even though there aren’t many who are proficient as software engineers.

Motherboard reports, “Google Employee’s Anti-Diversity Manifesto Goes ‘Internally Viral’

At least eight Google employees tweeted Friday about a document that was circulated within the company calling for replacing Google’s diversity initiatives with policies that encourage “ideological diversity” instead. The document, which is the personal opinion of one senior software engineer, was shared on a company mailing list but has since gone “internally viral,” according to a Google employee who spoke with Motherboard.

Motherboard has not viewed the full document, but a screenshot we reviewed shows it’s titled “Google’s Ideological Echo Chamber.”

The person who wrote the document argued that the representation gap between men and women in software engineering persists because of biological differences between the two sexes, according to public tweets from Google employees. It also said Google should not offer programs for underrepresented racial or gender minorities, according to one of the employees I spoke to.

The 10-page Google Doc document was met with derision from a large majority of employees who saw and denounced its contents, according to the employee. But Jaana Dogan, a software engineer at Google, tweeted that some people at the company at least partially agreed with the author; one of our sources said the same.
