James Damore of Google recently wrote a memo detailing his thoughts about Google’s diversity initiatives. Within a month, it went viral, and he was fired, for “perpetuating gender stereotypes.” The problem is that everything James claimed is solidly backed by well-developed scientific literatures. Thus, the company in charge of much of the world’s communication has now fired an excellent engineer for citing established scientific truths.
In this full 50 min interview, James and Jordan Peterson discuss his motivations, and the consequences of his actions. We are joined (audio only) by another Google employee who wishes, for obvious reasons, to remain anonymous.
