In light of the story around AI ethics researcher Timnit Gebru, do you believe Google is committed to transparent and ethical AI practices?

Top Answer : I think google by nature always has some nefarious intent with anything they do.  It is all centered around making money and using data no matter how it is acquired as a means to do so.

Return to the physical officeReturn to the physical office

How are leaders approaching the return to the physical workplace?

Is diversity a significant consideration in your hiring practices?

Top Answer : I'm proud of the team and the culture that I've built at multiple companies. I don't know that it's absolutely required that everybody's best friends. I’ve found that as a leader you have to establish that culture in how you operate and your belief system. That's where it starts. You need to give people freedom, show them how you operate and really explain what you expect of them. When I join an organization brand new, I set the stage by saying, "I'm going to overshare and I trust that you won't share that with anybody else. I'll tell you things that you should know." And everywhere I've been, I've received thank yous and fewer questions. It's the added context of why we are working on something that helps us share the company's goals. If we pivot, sometimes the conversations have been, “We have to pivot because I don't have the budget,” or, “We won’t get headcount,” or, “The business changed their mind.” That establishes a lot of trust. And that trust is what builds a bridge between age, ethnicity, culture, all of that stuff. You don't have to be best friends, but trust builds friendship inherently in the end.

How understanding are you of technical difficulties with virtual conferences or webinars?

Top Answer : It does friend on how it happened for the same people. If it's too frequent, it suggests an issue with their capability. Once or twice though, it's understandable.

Should team members be friends to get the most out of a shared mission or project?

Top Answer : A team doesn't have to be made up of all the same people. One could be an outgoing soccer mom, another could be a deep technical person, and the other one could be somebody that's introverted, etc. But given the right dynamics, those people can create something that's greater than the individuals. And it's really impressive to see and to watch, even though you know that at the end of the day, they'll walk out different doors of the building and go their separate ways. And almost never will they go drinking after work unless there's a specific celebration for a project or something. That's when you really know that you're successful at building and enabling teams when you see that behavior.

IT Hiring Q2 2021IT Hiring Q2 2021

What's the state of hiring for IT in Q2 2021?

When should you consider a candidate’s customer service skills when hiring?

Top Answer : Identifying customer service skills is 100% important from a customer experience standpoint. It's about the culture. It takes one bad apple to ruin 20 people and make everybody's life miserable. You can teach people technology, but you can't teach attitude or empathy. If someone has a bad attitude, it's really hard to course correct that.
