GA & Uber Design Pathways

Since the early days of Uber, the simple interaction of “tap a button and get a ride” has changed people’s lives. And now it has become something much more profound. At Uber, we work to reimagine the way the world moves for the better. We believe that everyone should be empowered to move freely and safely—physically, economically, and socially. To do that, we must fight racism and be a champion for full equity, both inside our company and on our platform. We must use our global reach, our technology, our data—and, importantly, our voice—to help create a safer, more inclusive company and to be a strong ally to all the communities we serve.
