Google Walkout for Real Change

Google employees hold signs in protest.

This is important and amazing to see. Google is a massive company—both in terms of employees and influence. Its products are amazing, but its culture and ethical practices are revealing themselves to be wildly lacking. It’s heartening to see so many employees take a stand in order to affect real change. If they succeed (and I don’t think they’ll stop until they do), then it could be the start of an amazing movement in the tech world. Change at Google could beget change at other tech companies, and that change is sorely needed.

See also their list of demands to leadership. It’s a good start. Let’s hope Sundar Pichai and his team respond as they should.
