Dublin's Google Staff Hold Protest Against Treatment Of Women

Share this article


Google staff in Dublin walked out on their jobs today in protest at the company's treatment of women.

The event attended by hundreds of workers coincided with similar protests across the globe.

At around 11am this morning, workers started walking out of Google’s offices in Grand Canal Dock.

A group of Google staff have released a statement to say key changes are needed at how the company handles allegations of sexual harassment.

They say the problems go all the way to the top, and more transparency and clearer policies are needed to address the issue.

It follows reports a top Google executive was paid out $90 million, even though there was a credible allegation of sexual misconduct made against him.

Google's CEO Sundar Pichai has released a short statement addressing today's planned walkout "Yesterday, we let Googlers know that we are aware of the activities planned for Thursday and that employees will have the support they need if they wish to participate. Employees have raised constructive ideas for how we can improve our policies and our processes going forward. We are taking in all their feedback so we can turn these ideas into action."
