Also from Boghossian. Discussing the case of James Damore.

Although this example illustrates the many problems that play in Google's culture, e.g., asking for feedback, company management only wanted the type of feedback that comported with the particular narrative about diversity, one misunderstanding comes from Google's non-standard use of the words diversity and inclusion. Damore, understandably, took diversity and inclusion to mean improving the participation of all team members, when clearly this was not what management intended by these terms. As a result of speaking frankly, though politely, across this terminological misunderstanding, Damore was fired from Google.
