Google firing fans flames of diversity debate in tech sectorThe dismissal of a Google engineer over a memo defending the Silicon Valley gender gap has fanned the flames of a simmering debate in the tech sector over sexism, free expression and political correctness. The "manifesto" published as an internal memo by James Damore, which claimed "biological differences" were a key factor in the low percentage of women in technology jobs sparked outcry from those claiming it perpetuated stereotypes and discrimination.
