Accomplishments

Coalition of Black Excellence Week

For Black History Month 2019, in partnership with OurCollective.us, we spearheaded the creation of the first-ever Coalition of Black Excellence Week in the Bay Area. More than 40 tech companies and community partners came together to surface educational, inspirational, and entertaining events. The week culminated in the Code Black Gala, which honored the business leaders and community partners who are driving change in Silicon Valley.

Global reach

Black at Uber has local engagement groups in locations across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Central and South America, as well as the United States and Canada.

Starting conversations

In support of the Phenomenal Woman Action Campaign, we hosted a series of fireside chats with Meena Harris, Head of Strategy and Leadership on the Diversity and Inclusion team, and special guests in multiple Uber offices. The purpose of these chats was to discuss the importance of diversity in the workplace with successful women of color.
