Google chief executive officer Sundar Pichai, speaking at a coding event for girls happening at Google’s campus emphasized the importance of engineers “building products for everyone in the world.
Pichai said to the teams of young women who were finalists in a months-long app-building competition. “There’s a place for you at Google. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. You belong here, and we need you.”
Pichai also came just after Google canceled a company-wide town hall meeting, which had been scheduled to address some of the fallout from the memo.
