One of the Alphabet executives accused of sexual misconduct in a bombshell New York Times’ report resigned on Tuesday.
In the wake of the Times’ piece, Google CEO Sundar Pichai sent an email to all employees saying the company had fired 48 people over the last two years for sexual harassment, including 13 “senior managers and above,” and that none had received an exit package.
“We are committed to ensuring that Google is a workplace where you can feel safe to do your best work, and where there are serious consequences for anyone who behaves inappropriately,” Pichai wrote.
In light of the Times’ reporting, a group of Google employees are organizing a walk-out to take place on Thursday, an employee confirmed to CNBC. BuzzFeed first reported the upcoming protest.
