In his now-infamous memo, Damore pointed to "personality differences" between men and women as one reason that fewer women serve as engineers at Google. Damore, who has since been fired, has also said that he was considering suing Google.
Damore closed the interview saying that while he was broadly in favor of bringing diversity to Google, he wished that that diversity could also include ideological balance.
Google has called for a company town hall meeting on diversity Thursday.

During the interview with the Daily Wire's Ben Shapiro, Damore claimed that Google firing him for pushing "harmful gender stereotypes" only revealed the company's overblown emphasis on diversity, denying allegations that his memo had pushed "harmful gender stereotypes".
William Gould, a Stanford law professor and former National Labor Relations Board chairman, said Google had a strong argument its firing of Damore was justified on the grounds that his memo raised questions about whether he could fairly assess the work of female colleagues. At Alphabet, which has almost 76,000 employees, Mr. Damore's firing has posed a test for how employees' views compare with their co-workers', inflaming feelings still raw from the divisive presidential election, employees said.
Damore said in the email he was exploring his legal options.
Google is now under investigation by the U.S. Department of Labor over claims it did not fairly pay some female employees. Otherwise, Google's workforce is predominately male and white. The author of the letter, James Damore, was subsequently terminated by Google, which led some to accuse Google of left-wing bias, and intolerance of differing ideas.
"It's demoralizing", said the worker, who requested The Guardian keep her identity secret for fear of retribution.
