After a boatload of drama at Google over how the company has handled sexual harassment and misconduct, CEO Sundar Pichai announced new policies.




Google is joining a wave of companies that will no longer force its employees making sexual harassment claims into private arbitration.




This is a hopeful sign that Silicon Valley's much publicized bro culture could be truly changing.



There's been another round of employee drama at Google these past few weeks. After The New York times published an explosive story on how the company previously protected one of its star engineers, Andy Rubin, amid a sexual misconduct investigation, Google CEO Sundar Pichai revealed the company has fired 48 employees for sexual harassment in the last two years.
On Thursday, Google published new policies for how the company will handle sexual harassment after employees staged a walkout and sent the company a list of five demands.
Employees didn't get everything they wanted, but they did get their top demand: an end to forced arbitration for sexual harassment cases.
