Uber has unveiled the latest expansion of its She++ initiative, reaffirming its commitment to fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion in the technology sector. This program is designed to offer early-career opportunities to women, individuals with disabilities, and other underrepresented students, allowing them to intern with Uber’s engineering teams and gain valuable insights and experience in the technology industry.

Originally focusing on promoting women in engineering, the She++ initiative has broadened its scope to embrace a wider diversity ambit. This year, the initiative attracted over 4,000 applications from prestigious engineering colleges throughout India, showcasing a growing interest in diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace. The event, held on March 7 at Uber’s Bangalore Campus, offered students a unique opportunity to interact with Uber’s leadership and HR professionals.

Dawn Carter, Director of Global Talent Acquisition at Uber, stated, “At Uber, we are committed to breaking down barriers and fostering an environment where all individuals can flourish. The expansion of She++ to encompass individuals with disabilities and others represents a significant stride in our mission to cultivate a more inclusive society. As Uber continues to prioritize diversity and inclusion, She++ stands as a cornerstone in our endeavour to forge a more equitable future for everyone. Through initiatives like She++, Uber not only shapes the trajectory of technology but also aims to propel positive societal transformation.”

The She++ professional development initiative provides a platform for early-career talent to learn from industry leaders, develop critical skills, and broaden their professional networks. This year’s event was marked by engaging activities such as fireside chats with industry leaders, speed mentoring sessions, networking lunches, and opportunities to contribute to Uber’s innovative projects.
