Billionaire Bill Gates and his wife Melinda is in news for some time now after they officially announced their divorce. After a lot of wait, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has finally broke his silence on the controversy surrounding Bill Gates illegal inappropriate affair with a female Microsoft employee two decades ago.
In a big revelation, Microsoft told to media in the early days of this month that the board had received a concern in the latter half of 2019 that Bill Gates sought to initiate an 'intimate' relationship with a company employee back in 2000. An investigation was started against Bill Gates by a law firm to pursue the complaint. Gates who resigned from the board last year under the cause of diverting attention to philanthropy, was actually in contention in this inquiry. This might be the real reason for his resignation.
Speaking to CNBC, Microsoft head Satya Nadella said, "I feel that we in Microsoft have created an environment that allows us to really drive the everyday improvement in our diversity and inclusion culture which I think is a super important thing and that's what we focus on."
Emphasizing on the importance of trust-worthy and comfortable working environment, he added, "The most important thing for us to make sure that everybody's comfortable in being able to raise any issues they see and for us to be able to fully investigate."
There have been any speculations and rumors about the reason behind divorce of Melinda Gates and Bill Gates. But, the real cause is still unrevealed.
