Sages at Uber:
A community promoting age diversity in the workplace
To promote diversity and inclusion of all generations by celebrating and sharing the wisdom that comes with age.
What we stand for
Promoting age diversity
Raising awareness of the importance of building age diversity in the workplace at Uber and beyond.
Providing a safe space for Uber employees 40+ and their allies of any age to share their experiences and work together to fight ageism across the organization. We build community through events with external speakers, informal get-togethers, and events with cross-sectional ERGs.
Creating and encouraging mentorship opportunities to share knowledge across generations.
Director, Compliance and Ethics
I work on the Global Compliance team within Legal and am responsible for programs (including training), processes, and policies. Previously, I worked in Legal to help the company implement the 47 recommendations contained in the Holder/Covington Report. I don’t feel very Sage (because I am in denial), but I recognize the value a group like this can bring and want to help in any way I can.
Senior Counsel, Litigation and Global Competition
I was initially shocked to discover that I qualified as a Sage upon joining Uber in the summer of 2017. Having now accepted my status, I hope to help make this ERG a valuable resource—and a source of fun activities—for its members and the Uber community as a whole.
Software Engineer II
I co-founded the Sages at Uber ERG to raise awareness about systemic ageism in the technology industry as a whole. As promoters of temporal diversity, we are the only ERG at Uber operating in the fourth dimension. My proudest moment at Uber so far was hosting the Sage “Jeopardy!” game I developed for the Sages at Uber launch party.
Events and initiatives
We host events, bringing awareness and driving discussion around our 3 main areas of interest: battling ageism, building age diversity, and encouraging mentorship. Our events are informative and fun. We’ve co-sponsored a financial wellness series with Morgan Stanley and a book event at Airbnb HQ on Chip Conley's recent book Wisdom@Work: The Making of a Modern Elder, with so much more to come! We currently are planning events on estate planning, making the most of our Uber benefits, and exploring a broad array of Airbnb experiences with our friends at Airbnb.
