Firefox has been slapped with a firestorm of criticism as of late, as websites have spoken out against the Internet browser and its chief executive, Brendan Eich, who donated $1,000 to the Proposition 8 campaign in 2008, according to CNET.
Eich recently spoke to CNET in an exclusive Q&A about the debate, saying his political beliefs do not affect his ability to be an effective CEO, nor do they hinder his ability to champion inclusiveness in the workplace, according to CNET.
“Mozilla has always worked according to principles of inclusiveness," Eich said. "It may be challenging for a CEO, but everyone in our community can have different beliefs about all sorts of things that may be in conflict. They leave them at the door when they come to work on the Mozilla mission. We are a broad, big, mission-based organization. It's not to say some of those other beliefs aren't as contributing to the open Web, but we will not succeed globally without being maximally inclusive by leaving exclusionary beliefs at the door. ”
