In 1995, world leaders followed a call by the United Nations and gathered in Beijing to produce an unprecedented plan for advancing gender equality and the empowerment of women everywhere.
Today, on the 20th anniversary of the Beijing Declaration, we are proud to share with The Uber Community that we are embarking on a new global partnership with UN Women with the goal of accelerating economic opportunity for women. As part of our commitment to this goal, Uber will create 1,000,000 jobs for women as drivers on the Uber platform by 2020.
With basketball season in full swing, Uber is encouraging fans to cheer responsibly. We are excited to announce that Uber and the Dallas Mavericks are teaming up to support Anheuser-Busch’s Bud Light “Good Sport” campaign, an in stadium, fan-focused designated driver program. So you can now enjoy the game and concessions knowing you have a safe and reliable ride home.
