Uber Releases Employee Diversity Report


Uber's first report on employee diversity shows low numbers for women, especially in technical positions.

The report comes as pressure mounts on the company in light of sexual harassment claims by a former employee.

Thirty-six percent of the company's employees are women. Google, in comparison, has 31 percent women and Apple, 32 percent.

When it comes to technology jobs such as engineering, only 15 percent are women at Uber. At Google, it's 19 percent and Apple, 23 percent.

Uber's report doesn't count its drivers as employees.

The company has been lobbying to be allowed to offer its services across New York State. Currently Uber is only allowed to operate in New York City.
