Silicon Valley Idealism at Odds with China Market
"'The tech industry had a utopian view of the world and of itself,' said Irina Raicu, director of Internet Ethics. 'It's running up against its own narrative of how it holds certain values.'
"Google is among the Silicon Valley companies that pride themselves on open cultures in which workers are encouraged to share views, creating an environment ripe for employee activism when values seem compromised, according to Ann Skeet, senior director or Leadership Ethics.
"'Google has led with this strong culture, and now has its own employees calling it on hypocrisy,' Skeet said."
