Google must pay female cloud exec $1.15 million in gender discrimination suit, jury says

October 23, 2023
  • A New York jury last week said Google discriminated against one of its female cloud executives.
  • Ulku Rowe sued her employer  in 2019, alleging she was paid less than male peers.
  • Google was ordered to pay Rowe over $1 million in damages. 

A federal jury in New York decided Friday that Google discriminated against a female executive due to her gender by hiring her at a lower, lesser-paid position than her male peers and retaliating against her when she complained.
