Current Statistics to reveal about the Gender Biasing:
The statistics report, which disclosed about Google’s gender diversity is quite shocking. According to the reports by Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, it was found that among the 36 executive members in the executive team, only 3 are women.
The whole Google team is composed of 83% men, and there are also fewer workforces among black and Hispanic people. This gender and cultural biasing has left a bad impression among the Google workers who now have made to benchmark to eradicate this gender biasing. However, there are no such evidences present, which support the cause, that the workshops to encourage women participation in Google are actively prevailing.
How Google defended its view about the Report:
Freada Kapor Klein, an entrepreneur who has studied cultural diversity speaks in defense of Google by stating that Google will be giving lecture on science and formulate active strategies to mitigate the gender inequality. She also says that Google has conducted many workshops which has been attended by more than 49,000 employees actively participated. Reflexive hidden bias was the topic of discussion in such workshops, which revealed that there exist a systematic discrimination of female population for the application of scientific job and academics.
Mr. Bock, a member of the Google team however rejects the reports stating that there is no manifestation of gender biasing in the Google team, and only some idiots have intentionally spread the rumor to degrade the name of the company. Reports also reveal that Google wants to remain in the shackles of gender biasing, which could be detrimental for the reputation of the company’s name.
How did Google’ Human Resource Team raised Awareness:
Google’s Human Resource team, which goes by the identity People Operations, has conducted a 90min hidden bias test, which targeted specially to the skeptical minded Google employees. In the test, Dr. Welle described how much people can be sexist and biased by showing certain computer stimulations. He also noted that there exists certain unconscious biasness in the workplace, which should be eliminated as soon as possible, by conducting certain workshop programs.
However, the question will crop in the forefront, “Whether Google will take an advancing foot to eradicate the gender biasing in their workplace?” and maintain their integrity as the finest tech industry worldwide.
