UberPride

Employee resource groups

UberPride is a group to promote LGBTQ+ inclusion and diversity at Uber

Our goal

We believe the world is brighter, more colorful, more productive, more creative, and happier when each of us can be authentic to who we are. UberPride advocates to build intersectional, supportive, and empowering communities—within Uber’s workplace and across the cities we serve.

“UberPride is committed to making significant impact for LGBTQ+ people around the world. I’m inspired by the actions that the group is taking to create more inclusive experiences for our employees and the communities we serve.”

 

Tony West

Senior Vice President, Chief Legal Officer and Corporate Secretary and UberPride’s Executive Sponsor

Accomplishments

Corporate equality

Our team in Mexico has set a new benchmark for inclusive corporate policies and practices related to the LGBTQ+ community, receiving a 100% score in the Corporate Equality Index. Way to go Uber Mexico!

Advocacy

Uber Australia turned up the rainbow in support of marriage equality, visibily supporting the local LGBTQ+ community in their quest to achieve marriage equality (spoiler: they did it!).

EurOut conference

UberPride’s very own Cleo Sham participated in a sold out discussion panel at the EUROUT conference in London. This event highlighted Uber’s commitment to being an LGBTQ+ friendly employer, and provided exposure to MBA students considering opportunities in Tech.

Transgender inclusion

After a survey undertaken by the Government of Kerala found that hardly any transgender people hold driver licenses, in 2017, Uber submitted a proposal expressing a keen interest to onboard transgender persons on to our platform. After much collaboration, the local government released an order announcing that it will provide driver training for up to 70 transgender people from across the state.

Community service

For Uber’s Week of Service, we partnered with the SF AIDS Foundation to help put together harm reduction kits for San Francisco's at-risk population for the transfer of HIV. On the other side of the country, ATG Pride is working to partner with Proud Haven, an organization that provides safe shelter for LGBTQ+ youth in Pittsburgh.

HRC recognition

We’re proud and excited that for the past three years, we’ve earned a top score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index, which deemed Uber one of the “Best Places to Work for LGBT Equality.” The CEI is an annual survey that helps corporations understand and implement best practices internally that are inclusive of the LGBTQ+ community.
