Google found itself at the center of controversy Sunday after an employee in a leaked internal document claimed "biological causes" explained the lack of women in tech industry leadership roles. The screed – dubbed "sexist" by U.S. media – went viral, reviving the simmering debate over a culture of sexism and lack of diversity in tech sectors.
