On December 5th, Uber published its first-ever safety study, disclosing passenger and Driver assaults and murders we’re here at Uber headquarters in San Francisco to talk about it with CEO Dara khosrowshahi, you reported that 3,000 different times, Uber drivers and passengers a sexual assault, while in vehicles. How did you feel when you first found out that number big number when you first see it and it’s still big number there there’s no getting used to 3,000 reports of some kind of a Salter incident, names of rides and 99.9 % of our rides start and Finish without any kind of incidents, but for us it represents that is a company. If we are going to Stanford safety, we have who first be transparent: transparency, accountability, accountability, drives action and sexual assault. Sexual misconduct is a societal problem, e non-employee drivers with passenger. Why should we trust that a software platform is going to keep us safe? I think that’s anytime, two people come together can be a great interaction or not a great interaction. You know these are humans are complex. If you look at the numbers, the reported incident rate that are happening on our platform are going down as a result of Technology. We do vehicle safety check. We do a background check. We do continuous background checks. Are there been over million girls who have wanted to form and I’ve been rejected? 2/3 of the reported cases of rape were not reported to the police, because sexual assault is one of the most under-reported crimes. We believe I should be up to the Survivor as to what they want to do, whether they want to report it to the police or not, and we will provide all of the tools to help facilitate that interaction. If the Survivor wants to report to the police, but it’s ultimately our policy to be Survivor, Central Care, let the police know and some form about these potential crimes happening during a responsibility is great. It is is enormous, but I would infer second pretend to make these decisions on a standalone basis. We have work with over 200 advocacy groups to understand what to do again. This is a big societal problem and we were on a platform, but it’s ultimately can import from The Advocates and understanding what the best Survivor, eccentric responses and we have taken our kind of next steps based on how they’ve advised us a open. My eyes was that about half of the assaults reported are from Friday. What are you doing to support them and Escape? We support our drivers, Justice, supporter Riders. We make sure that they have access to personal, all the same tools, the 911 tools, the check tools. We do that there is a third way where we can provide our drivers with minimum wage guarantees and Healthcare to some extent and protections. You know the laws of the land or one where, if you’re an employee, get a bunch of protections, if you’re not got no protections and we’re completely open to a dialogue of a third way, that’s befitting this new gig economy as well. If they got all the help that they need, but they’re responsible for their own medical bills, at this point, do you feel comfortable putting her in an Uber alone? I do because the incident rates are incredibly low. As a friend, I probably walk down the block with him and I would probably drop them off at home as well, so I don’t think it’s being on a Uber or not, but if someone is drunk tickets up to friends, take care of them. Where what do you say to the people, then? Who is half of them were passengers? Maybe some of them were people who are John current intoxicated and made that choice and and and it resulted in and Jumble Solver star drop to do better. We’Ve been open about these issues, they continue to play society and we are reflection of society and we’re doing our part and we will go
