A former engineer who wrote a sexist manifesto disparaging Google’s efforts to close the gender gap is now suing, claiming the search giant discriminates against conservative white men.
James Damore’s controversial 10-page memo, posted to an internal Google message board in August, posited that women are underrepresented in tech because of “personality differences” between the sexes — not because of any workplace discrimination they may experience.
The memo, which cited women’s “neuroticism” as a reason there are fewer female workers in high-stress jobs, was published the following day by the tech website Gizmodo and went viral. Damore was quickly fired.
In a class action lawsuit against Google filed Monday in Santa Clara Superior Court in Northern California, Damore and another former Google engineer, David Gudeman, argue that Google has an “open hostility for conservative thought.”
