The Uber manager who headed Susan Fowler’s department has departed
AG Gangadhar ran the engineering unit where the former female engineer — whose blog post on sexism sparked recent investigations — worked.
AG Gangadhar, was the director of the department buffeted by an allegation of sexual harassment and discrimination.
Five months ago, ex-Uber engineer Susan J. Fowler published a blog post, in which she said she had repeatedly complained about sexual harassment and discrimination at the ride-sharing company, but was ignored or punished.
In the post, Fowler also said she had requested to transfer out of her department but, “according to my manager, his manager, and the director, my transfer was being blocked” due to undocumented performance problems.
In reality, she claims she had a perfect performance score and there hadn’t been any complaints about her performance.
