Employee resource group
Uber's Jewish community
Our mission is to create a community celebrating Jewish heritage, teachings and faith for Uber employees around the world.
“Being the Executive Sponsor of Shalom gives me an opportunity to build on Uber's great culture of inclusion by infusing Jewish heritage and values into our rich Uber mosaic.”
Global Head of Community Operations & Executive Sponsor of Shalom
Operations and Logistics Manager
I firmly believe that the ability to connect with your workplace comes from the idea of ‘bringing your whole self to work’. Helping restart Uber Shalom has not only allowed me to connect to Uber employees who share my background to celebrate a common heritage, but also given me the opportunity to connect and partner with the incredible leaders of the many other ERGs at Uber.
Supporting diversity and inclusion is, to me, a core value of the Jewish community and helping bring that spirit to life at Uber is a wonderful opportunity.
In early 2017, I revived the Shalom ERG because I saw a need for employees of the Jewish faith and allies to be part of a safe and inclusive community where we celebrate the culture, holidays, and teachings of Judaism. I had an incredible time contributing to the success of the ERG in 2017 and am looking forward to the group’s continued success in 2018.
Manager, Strategy & Planning
I am excited by the opportunity to lead the Shalom ERG and build a stronger and more diverse community at Uber. One of my proudest moments at Uber was when I first opened the Chicago Center of Excellence with a brilliant and diverse group of talented support agents. Having an opportunity to continue building and shaping our community from the product our riders and drivers use to the support we provide to our community is amazing.
Central Operations Manager
I think everyone at Uber and our broader communities should have a voice. This ERG gives me an opportunity to have a voice and represent others in the company. Not only do I get to represent my ERG but I get to work through our challenges of bringing people with different backgrounds together alongside Uber's other ERGs.
We hosted Shabbat celebrations in nine offices. By happenstance, the event took place on the Shabbat after Charlottesville. It became an important moment of recognition and respect for our heritage by Uber and our colleagues, Jewish and non-Jewish alike.
In collaboration with our ERGs for parents and veterans, we organized a multi-office toy drive for Toys for Tots during Hanukkah, donating 652 toys in all. 19 offices participated, including corporate offices, Greenlight Hubs, Centers of Excellence and ATG.
Shalom + UberHue
In collaboration with UberHue, we did a multi-office screening of “Little White Lie” and a discussion with the director and subject of the film, Lacey Schwartz. Lacey was raised Jewish and white, only to later discover her father was actually African-American, raising questions of race and identity that the film explores.
