While nearly all other major players in the tech space have put out a statement on how they plan to support their employees with Roe v Wade being overturned, Bose has stayed silent. Sad to say that I am not shocked considering they refuse to match donations to Planned Parenthood. Still the same “Old Boys Club” it’s always been, unfortunately.

To the CEO: Make me a samich.
Somebody's really touchy about women.
The only people who care about the CEO being female are people who would start or defend a thread entitled "Women at Bose."
The white nazionalist incels are really triggered by Bose having a woman for a president.
Somebody must not be competent enough to make it on something other than identify politics, and they must also be too dim-witted to recognize that being anti-white, anti-male, and anti-Christian is racist, s-xist, and bigoted. Good luck nitwit. You’ll need it.
Somebody must have missed out on an opportunity because of his blatant misogyny. It's so sad that he's weeping and whining.
As a place of business where employees of various backgrounds are bound to work due to economic necessity, Bose has a responsibility opposite the one you are suggesting. The leaders at Bose and all other companies have an obligation to refrain from using their positions as political tools.
Moreover, the idea that Bose leadership is actually behaving according to this obligation is ridiculous, which makes me think the original poster must work for the company as a propagandist.
In recent years, Bose has descended into woke stoogery. Some great engineers have left to give themselves a raise, number one, but also to leave before they’re asked to step aside for cultists who believe something other than habits should provide upward mobility.
So, no, Bose leadership should not take controversial political positions. An, no, Bose leaders are not actually unbiased with respect to politics, as they are actively promoting an “equity” culture where aggrieved whiners effectively nag managers to gain social promotion, and the notion of a competence hierarchy vanishes along with corporate productivity and market share.
"I felt so disregarded there bc I wasn’t a white male christian."
Curious...I can't think of anyone that was at Bose while I was there publicly self-identified as Christian (besides me), and you better believe I kept that to myself.
"Bose is a big pile of ...."
Does that mean the July layoffs have already started?
Bose is a big pile of B S
Bose has never stuck it’s head out for any social issue - it pretends the world is only the world on the mountain. I felt so disregarded there bc I wasn’t a white male christian.
Let's not pretend that Bose is non-political. Refusing to match donations to PP is a clear political statement of the official "company position" to its employees and to PP.
Couldn’t disagree more to the post below. No reason to go down a political argument but the ruling on roe vs wade (and what could come next - terrifying) is so much deeper than just abortion. It’s not seeing women as equal thus further holding women back in their careers. Bose doesn’t need to take a political stance but an internal message acknowledging what just happened and how this if impacting the mental wellbeing of a lot of people is the absolute minimum.
I left Bose a couple years ago and work for a large corporation, predominantly male, and what one would describe as “old school”. They don’t take sides on political issues but sent an internal message saying they want to ensure healthcare services and “fair and equitable” for all employees and would pay for employees to get “services” in other states. We’ve also had optional small group meeting as a means of support with people telling personal stories. It’s been amazing and empowering and given me so much more respect for my company.
Your statement seemly assumes all women at Bose support abortion or Roe V Wade, I'm pretty sure that isn't the case. It also seems like the Bose position overall is a good one in that social and political issues that are not directly related to our business (no matter how passionate the base) shall not become a distraction to the mission of the corporation and shouldn't be constantly commented on or have a 'company position'. Of course, you are free to protest and rally on your own time/dime for whatever your heart desires and freedom permits, but dragging Bose into every one of the millions of social and political issues at hand in our world would accelerate its demise and crush diversity of thought/belief. BTW... I think United Way supports planned parenthood... you can donate and get company match there if you are so inclined.
Another fantastic example of why I’m happy I left Bose.
There are very few women left on the engineering space. The headcount for females in tech at Bose is very low right now. Not a very good time to be a woman in tech at Bose.
What uttter stupid B.S. - why Bose is FINIS!
