Report: Google diversity head rejects employee claims about gender inequality

Danielle Brown, vice president for diversity at Alphabet Inc. unit Google Inc., shot down "incorrect assumptions" made by a company employee in a memo on gender inequality, Bloomberg News reported Aug. 6.

In an internal note to staffers, Brown said "diversity and inclusion are critical to our success as a company," and the claims made by the employee are not endorsed or promoted by Google.

The unnamed Google engineer had argued in his memo called "Google's Ideological Echo Chamber" that Google had a "politically correct monoculture" that ignored differences between the sexes and accused the company of lowering the "bar for 'diversity'" candidates.
