Google employees write to executives to express their dissatisfaction: the diversification goal is not clear enough
According to reports, Google’s internal emails showed that employees in charge of the relationship between Google and universities questioned executives and asked them to set clearer goals for company diversification . Employees felt that the company’s difficulty in retaining non-white employees hindered recruitment.
There is a team called University Programs within Google. In June, team employees wrote to Kyle Ewing, Google’s head of personnel operations. The letter expresses the dissatisfaction of the employees, who believe that the executives’ efforts in diversification are far from enough. The letter also lists a series of methods to clearly define the roles of University Programs employees and set goals for employees.
The letter also suggested that Google set up an accountability system, audit all managers, and provide data on working hours and salaries of non-white employees at all levels of University Programs, and compare it with data on white employees, including current and past data.
A Google News spokesperson responded: “We thank our employees for sending such emails. We received the emails in June. All employees will work hard for our commitment to racial equality. We are turning these specific commitments into continuous and meaningful Variety.”
