Uber CEO Reveals Details On Sexual Harassment Investigation

Remember the lady we told you about the other day (here) that accused Uber of sexual harassment?  Well, it looks like the ride sharing company has been forced to take action and might even be taking this seriously.

A former Uber engineer's blog post that blew up online did more than just shame the company into finally investigating her long-ignored sexual harassment allegations. It has also forced the ride-sharing service to take a look at its diversity numbers. In a memo sent out to employees earlier, Uber CEO Travis Kalanick has revealed that he and new Chief HR Officer Liane Hornsey are working on publishing the company's first diversity report in the next few months. While diversity reports are common in the tech industry, it's out of the norm for Uber, which is still a private entity.
