Only 30 Percent Women: Google Releases Data About Their (Lack Of) Diversity

todays lady news
  • Google released information yesterday about diversity within its workforce — and if you guessed that the majority of their employees “white” and “male,” you win a prize! According to data from January 2014 onward, 70 percent of its workforce are men and 30 percent are women. Sixty-one percent are white, 30 percent are Asian, three percent are Hispanic, and two percent are Black. “[W]e’re the first to admit that Google is miles from where we want to be—and that being totally clear about the extent of the problem is a really important part of the solution,” they wrote in the post. While I agree there is much to be improved, I commend Google about their transparency. [Google Official Blog] Keep reading »

To Google Or Not To Google: This Flowchart Answers The Eternal Question

It’s nice to finally have some assistance with the Should You Google dilemma.

And they’ve considered all the important things like, whether or not you intend to date the person, or how badly you want to feel about yourself. But they forgot to address the question of Googling yourself. The answer is always yes. No exceptions. So you know what other people see when they Google you. [The Date Report] Keep reading »

Google Earns Ridiculous Backlash For Not Showing Eggs Or Jesus On Easter

I was too busy hosting brunch and raiding my kids’ Easter baskets to notice what yesterday’s Google doodle was, but apparently it was INCREDIBLY controversial. The anti-religious leftists in Mountain View had the gall to not only choose a doodle that had nothing to do with colorful eggs, chocolate bunnies, or Jesus H.

Clearly this was a political statement from those sneaky liberals. Why else celebrate the lesser-known birthday of a progressive icon when they could be reminding us all that it was EASTER?

Unless … unless they’re a non-religious organization that isn’t held to a Christian agenda and they’re known for focusing on historical events that educate, rather than consistently pointing out something that everyone’s already aware of? Read more…
