Our mission is 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.
Creating and encouraging mentorship opportunities to share knowledge across generations.
I co-founded the UberSages 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 UberSages launch party.
In the 70s, I wrote my first computer program. In the 10s, I co-founded the UberSages ERG to educate people about ageism. In any setting, you really need a lot of diversity to get the best product possible. One aspect of diversity is age. Older workers have “been there done that” and add a different perspective to many problems.
Head of Marketing, North America, Uber for Business
I’m excited to join UberSages in their their mission to help us have a dialogue across all age groups about age diversity and make real progress toward combating ageism in the workplace.
Everybody has an age, and we all, hopefully, get to work for a very long time. No matter what your age, everybody has wisdom to share and can be a sage! Join us!
My headline hope for the future? “Uber makes big gains and leads tech in age diversity.”
In September 2017, we launched with a party featuring favorite arcade video games in traditional cabinets, a Sage Jeopardy trivia contest, and an 80’s themed DJ.
The road ahead
In 2018 we plan on hosting events, bringing awareness and driving discussion around our three main areas of interest: battling ageism, building age diversity, and encouraging mentorship.
