    ABI Ends Partnership with Uber Recently, the Anita Borg Institute (ABI) ended our partner relationship with Uber Technologies, Inc. This is a rare step for us, but we felt compelled to take action in light of the many serious accusations Uber faces regarding the treatment of women employees. SHARE THISFacebook Twitter Googleplus LinkedIn Mail Recently, the Anita Borg Institute (ABI) ended our partner relationship with Uber Technologies, Inc. This is a rare step for us, but we felt compelled to take action in light of the many serious accusations Uber faces regarding the treatment of women employees. “Our communities have expressed significant concern about ABI’s partnership with Uber, due to the severity of the allegations,” said ABI President and CEO Dr. Telle Whitney. “We recognize our responsibility to stand up for women in tech and address the issues they face. We continue to welcome and support individual women technologists that work at Uber.” ABI’s History with Uber In 2015, Uber expressed interest in working with ABI. Although we had concerns about the company’s reputation, we opened a dialog with Uber leadership and Uber’s internal resource group for women technologists. At ABI, we work continually with our partner companies to create organizations where women technologists can thrive at all levels. Our partners commit to take action to achieve the following: Improve the retention and advancement of women technologists; Learn more about the factors that create an inclusive culture and the challenges facing women technologists; and Improve recruiting practices to bring more women into technical roles. Although Uber signed on to ABI’s partnership program, the company has not been an active partner. As a result of Uber’s lack of engagement, we made the decision to end our partner relationship. “Our communities have expressed significant concern about ABI’s partnership with Uber, due to the severity of the allegations,” said ABI President and CEO Dr. Telle Whitney. “We recognize our responsibility to stand up for women in tech and address the issues they face. We continue to welcome and support individual women technologists that work at Uber.” What’s Next? ABI will continue to work on behalf of all women technologists while Uber determines how it wants to evolve as a company and a culture. We welcome and support the individual women technologists who work at Uber and other tech companies. If you are one of these women, we invite you to join us. Become a member of our Systers community, participate in your nearest ABI.Local group, and take part in ABI events worldwide. We value your work and your resilience, and we want you to know you are not alone.
