A Ladies of Uber Lunch for Mother’s Day

As we committed to create 1 million jobs for women all around the world by 2020, but also to celebrate Mother’s Day, the Uber Montreal team invited a few female partner-drivers to share their experiences with Uber during an intimate lunch!

Some drive full time, others part time, but all of them agree that they love being an Uber partner. Why? They love the freedom, the social aspect of the job (they have wonderful conversations with their riders), and of course, the additional income.

Among the women invited, there were entrepreneurs, housewives, business women and students. Although they are from different countries all over the globe, they all share several personality traits: They feel good about themselves, they are confident, happy and they love people!


During the meal, we got to know each other and we shared a few anecdotes, some funny, others touching:
