Our mission is to build a community for Muslims and allies at Uber to come together and promote religious and cultural understanding. At Uber, our ecosystem touches many people who identify with this religious faith, from our offices around the world to drivers and riders who use our platform.
We strive to promote an environment of inclusion and be both internal advocates and external allies for the Muslim community at large.
What we stand for
Creating internal and external Uber community
Raising awareness for issues affecting the Muslim community
Focusing on mentorship, coaching, and recruiting efforts
Anem has been at Uber for over 2 years and is currently a Program Manager on the Global Marketing Alignment team. Co-Founding Salam is one of her greatest achievements as it provided a platform for Muslims at Uber to feel supported and heard, especially with the current political climate. Outside of work, you can find her globetrotting on exciting adventures and immersing herself in new and rich cultures around the world.
Uber Eats Launcher
Salmaa is an Uber Eats Launcher in the Middle East and joined Uber in early 2015. She has worked on marketing and operations for the both the Rides and Eats business across various markets. Growing up visibly Muslim and Arab has given her an unique perspective of inclusion in the West. She is excited to leverage those pivotal experiences in building cultural understanding and diversity part of the fabric of Uber. Outside of work, you can find her taking on a new hobby or planning her next international getaway.
Our first event
We hosted our very first event in February 2018. We had over 150 people, both employees and external guests, attend the fireside chat with our Chief Brand Officer and Executive Sponsor, Bozoma Saint John, and Olympic Medalist Ibtihaj Muhammad. The two inspiring and fierce women discussed their paths to success, the obstacles of chartering a new territory and how anyone can achieve their #badassdreams!
Two of our members, Salmaa Elshanshory and Paulina Ramos, spent time supporting Syrian and Rohingya refugee camps abroad by helping teach children to code and scaling education programs on sexual violence. They are now leading efforts to build out a "Volunteercation Program" for Uber at large. The idea is for motivated employees to spend time volunteering during their time off.
