Storm at Google over engineer’s anti-diversity manifesto

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 for some time, but it was made public by Motherboard on Saturday.

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.
