Women Driver-Partner Appreciation Roundtables Recap

In March, we pledged to create job opportunities for 1,000,000 women as drivers on the Uber platform by 2020. Every day, in each of our 300+ cities and 57 countries, we are working toward that goal.

Last week, in honor of Mother’s Day, we hosted women driver-partner appreciation events in 16 cities around the world to hear directly from our partners about their experience driving with Uber and to bring awareness to the flexible, equitable earning opportunity the Uber platform affords.

During these partner appreciation events we met with hundreds of incredible women driving on the Uber platform. The conversations at each roundtable provided us with invaluable feedback on new ways to enhance the platform and insights on how to build an even broader network of women driver-partners.

We heard from women like Mumbai Uber partner, Samina:

I’ve been encouraged by the enthusiasm and support I receive from women driver-partners and Uber riders during trips.”

And enjoyed our discussions with women like San Diego partner, Jessica:

What I love about Uber is that you get out of it what you put in. There is no economic inequality and no favoritism. I’m in control and it’s so cool!”

We look forward to continuing to meet with and learn from women partners as we drive toward our job creation pledge.
