Accomplishments

Public speaking communities

Immigrants at Uber started 2 Toastmasters clubs at Uber, with active membership forming in Palo Alto and San Francisco. Toastmasters provides robust support for speaking, communication, and leadership skills for participants.

Global mentorship

The Immigrants at Uber ERG hosts quarterly Mentoring over Lunch events. We invite Executive Mentors hosting roundtable chats with mentees. This was a globally distributed event, with sessions held in India, Mexico, Poland, Saudi Arabia and in the US.

Legal insight sessions

Immigrants at Uber hosts regular Visa with Chai Samosa sessions. We invite lawyers from Uber’s legal partnership and experts from Uber’s immigration team to provide updates and Q&A for members. This builds the bridge for Uber employees to address their concerns and questions.

Intersectional partnerships

We also focus on the greater good at Uber outside our core membership. On Veterans Day 2018, our ERG did a project to honor all Uber veteran employees by helping to fly a US flag in each employee’s honor at the US Capitol. The flags were presented to the employees.
