The fired Google engineer did a photoshoot outside the company's headquarters

Sundar Pichai Google CEO

But Google executives, including the chief executive officer and the chief of diversity, deemed the document to be in violation of the company's code of conduct because it "perpetuated gender stereotypes".

Damore is now on tour of mostly conservative media outlets.

James Damore, the software engineer fired by Google for circulating a 10-page manifesto inside the company that suggested women might be under-represented in tech generally and "leadership" inside the company due to their biology, has described the company as "almost like a cult" in an opinion column published the Wall Street Journal. The New York Times dubbed Duke "the Annie Leibovitz of the Alt-right" and said he does the shoots pro bono.

According to media reports, as many as 35 candidates have filed nomination papers for the by-poll scheduled to be held on September 17.

His memo has ignited a fierce debate about the company's culture.

For its part, Google must now grapple with possible lawsuits; a fired employee who's fast becoming a public figure; an ongoing debate over the limits of free speech; a surge of employees leaking information; and a struggle to protect employees as it becomes the latest villain for the alt-right. A Blind survey found that a majority of employees at Google, Uber, Yahoo, Airbnb, Microsoft, Facebook, and Amazon thought that Damore should not have been fired. Take a look at a couple more banners below. Someone with access to an employee-only version of Google Plus made screenshots of messages written by Google employees pledging to create blacklists of colleagues not supportive of the company's diversity measures. A number of Google employees who had been outspoken on the matter started facing harassment on the internet. In the meantime, the fired Google employee has been thrust into the spotlight and gained several job offers.

A number of employees sent emails to Pichai and told managers that they planned to skip the meeting because they were anxious that they would face online reprisals for speaking out. "You belong here, and we need you", said a report in The Verge on Friday, quoting Pichai. She said the personal essay proved his memo was "sexist" and "anti-diversity". Only after the memo spread quickly online did the company take action, he wrote.

Koeman says he will only be able to make a true assessment of his team after they complete their transfer business. It is always better to start at home than away.

While some individuals surmised the memo may have sprung from Damore's resentment toward Google's diversity initiatives, others welcomed it.

The Google employee memo, which gained attention online over the weekend, begins by saying that only honest discussion will address a lack of equity.
