Some Google employees are planning to walk out from their jobs because they’re dissatisfied with Chief Executive Officer Sundar Pichai’s response to a report about the company’s handling of alleged sexual harassment by executives, according to people familiar with the matter.

The workers are planning to leave their desks at the same time and gather. Timing of the protest is still being set, but it may happen on Thursday.  The organizers have a list of requests for the company to consider. They declined to specify the demands, but one of the people said the requests aim to help anyone who might be affected by sexual harassment or power dynamics at work. The people asked not to be identified discussing a private matter.
