Hi ladies, I recently applied to Google, but then saw the news reports about the discrimination that POC are experiencing in these big tech companies. I would love to transfer my HR skills in to a tech job, but how do we feel about FAANG companies? Are there any other companies you recommend applying to?

Companies rarely have monolithic and culture can vary within large organizations. I have friends a Google and they are very pro equity. I think given the nature of engineer heavy tech companies, that it tends to be more conservative. Ask the hard questions during interviews. Good luck!
