Driving change for women’s safety
Sexual assault and gender-based violence don’t belong anywhere in our communities. Which is why Uber is committed to help stop incidents before they happen—by partnering with and learning from women's safety groups, building tools and policies, promoting awareness, and empowering our community of users.
If anything happens, 24/7 support is available in the app from a specialized team of Uber agents who are trained to handle sensitive reports.
Victims of sexual assault and sexual harassment—whether riders, drivers, or employees—are free to bring individual claims in court and share the facts of those claims. Learn more about how we no longer require mandatory arbitration.
Women’s safety pledge
Uber pledged $5 million to women’s safety organizations through 2022. See some of the groups that we’ve funded below.
We partnered with the National Sexual Violence Resource Center and the Urban Institute to create a taxonomy to categorize and count sexual misconduct and sexual assault incidents, which we’ve shared with other companies that have women’s safety initiatives. Learn more here.
Law enforcement and 100+ women’s safety and advocacy organizations help develop our processes and technology. We host meetups with executives across various industries to brainstorm ways to create meaningful change.
