Microsoft is not transparent about transparency
You can probably see through the reasons
Software King of the World Microsoft is refusing to release a transparency report into the way it handles women employees.
On March 20, 2019, a Microsoft employee who had been at the company for three years sent an email to a collection of listservs for women asking how to move up in the organisation.
She had worked for years without a promotion and said her career was limited because she was a woman.
In the next few days, dozens and dozens of other women replied to the message, each sharing frustration and stories of discrimination and harassment at the company.
Some said they had been subject to overt abuse, like being called a “bitch" during business functions, and others said they had been sexually harassed with no ramifications to the harassers.
Microsoft’s top executives, including CEO Satya Nadella and top Human Resources (HR) exec Kathleen Hogan, were quickly CC'd on the chain.
“This thread has pulled the scab off a festering wound. The collective anger and frustration is palpable. A wide audience is now listening. And you know what? I’m good with that”, a Microsoft employee wrote in the email chain at the time.
