Recent reports of sexual harassment within the Uber culture have put the company in the spotlight – and it is a very negative light. A former employee wrote a blog post about her experience within the company, prompting an investigation. The former employee, a full-time engineer, had experienced harassment from within. At the same time, there are about 2,000 women who drive for Uber, and many of them reportedly feel that their complaints have been overlooked.
Women who work as contracted employees for Uber are exposed to potentially dangerous situations because they are essentially accepting strangers into their cars. Many have faced sexual harassment from customers, and have filed complaints with the company, only to receive generic responses.
Women, including transgender women, in all fields can be vulnerable to sexual harassment, which can make it hard or even impossible to thrive in the workplace.
