Google cancels townhall meeting about controversial anti-diversity memo

Article here. I've never been so happy NOT to work for a company that supplies its employees three gourmet-quality meals a day gratis. What a world we live in. Excerpt:

'Google CEO Sundar Pichai canceled an employee townhall meeting on Thursday about a controversial anti-diversity memo written by a fired employee because of online harassment concerns, the company said.

Questions from the tech firm’s employees about gender issues were being leaked outside of the company, raising concerns about online harassment. Some of these employees were named on social media and websites.

“Googlers are writing in, concerned about their safety and worried they may be ‘outed’ publicly for asking a question in the Town Hall,” Pichai wrote in a memo to staff. “In recognition of Googlers’ concerns, we need to step back and create a better set of conditions for us to have the discussion.”

He said that in the coming days the company will find forums where Google employees can speak freely and comfortably about the issue.'
