Meanwhile, Damore's memo appears to have fuelled the internal strife among Google's female employees.
The manager said that dealing with frequent sexism in the workplace and helping other women navigate the discrimination they were facing took a toll on her and contributed to her decision to quit. And needless to say, the issue isn't going away anytime soon.
When former Google software engineer #James Damore's memo led to his termination and cast attention on the issues he raised, it created an uproar among female movers and shakers in business, academe and the tech industry.
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.
In "Why I was sacked by Google", Damore reveals the toxic workplace culture in the company, where sharing opinions is limited to a certain ideological spectrum.
Echo chambers maintain themselves by creating a shared spirit and keeping discussion confined within certain limits.
The controversy has fueled a national debate, at a time when Silicon Valley has had to grapple with tough questions about the diversity of its ranks.
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".
Google took this is as a direct insult and fired the author.
Google on Thursday abruptly canceled a town hall meeting to address the fallout from an anti-diversity memo, but CEO Sundar Pichai made his feelings on the matter known Thursday night at an event honoring girl coders from around the world.
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.
Damore, who has emerged as a hero of conservative media, stands by his memo, saying he considered it a "reasoned, well-researched, good-faith argument".
Damore's Twitter account has nearly 60,000 followers despite starting days ago.
Google is now defending itself from a lawsuit from the US Department of Labour which is alleging that the company systematically discriminates against women. Damore's firing has sparked a furious debate both within and outside Google, with the alt-right reportedly outraged and even calling for a boycott of Google. Other men working in tech, it seemed, felt the same way he did. And some are anxious that you can not speak out at work freely.
In an op-ed published on Friday in the Wall Street Journal, Damore wrote that he first circulated his lengthy memo to some people at Google about a month ago. The loud voice here is a liberal one. "What is leadership doing to ensure Googlers like me feel *invited and accepted*, not just tolerated or safe from angry mobs?"
