Google CEO Sundar Pichai will hold a town hall meeting with all Google employees Thursday to address the recent diversity memo written by fired Google engineer James Damore.

Town halls are nothing new at Google. They’re held regularly with employees and executives. But Thursday’s meeting is expected to be tense given the controversy Damore’s memo stirred up both inside and outside the company.

Pichai told Google employees Monday that he’d lead the town hall with other members of the company’s leadership team.

The town hall will take place at 4 p.m. Pacific, a source told Business Insider. We’ll have details on what happens at the meeting as soon as we can.
