What the hey are you talking about? It has probably less to do with their race/gender & more of the fact that they have some type of leverage (ie they’re in a position where it’d be difficult to replace them with someone with the same level of skill /there’s too much disruption to the project/client relationships, or they’re well connected )

I think it's being made a deal if because she was an ethicist, not her gender/race.

Did you see the articles on leaked content? She challenges some foundational elements and hit some sensitive topics core to Google. Sounds like they didn’t like what she was saying vs quality of content. Usually when you submit something for review, you get feedback and those providers come forward. Writing white papers is a collaborative and naturally contentious exercise. She got nothing and it was shelved with controversial reasoning (looks weak from the materials online). Seems like she is holding a value and ethics position and feels like she is being silenced. Sounds less about race/gender. Just happens to be a nuisance in the story. My bet is she negotiates a huge settlement for her to go away. The bad press alone has viewed the google brand in a negative light (worth it alone for this publicity to go away). In return, they will get her silence. Story goes away for now.
