Google Shareholders and Employees Demand Action to Increase Diversity

 

It’s no secret that Google employees have been unhappy with diversity, workers' rights, and handling of sexual misconduct allegations for quite some time now. But they've decided that enough is enough. Employees and shareholders have joined forces to write a resolution to the board of Google’s parent company, Alphabet Inc., calling for worker treatment and racial and gender diversity reform. The resolution suggests that the company’s diversity metrics should be tied to the executives’ bonuses. It says, “The tech diversity crisis threatens worker safety, talent retention, product development, and customer service.” Google responded, "We're working hard to make Google more representative and build an inclusive workplace where employees feel respected, supported, and valued. We report our progress extensively every year, including hiring and attrition rates across lines of race and gender."
