THE TELEGRAPH: The global ridesharing company issued a joint statement with UN Women to announce its efforts to “accelerate economic opportunity for women.”

Uber’s CEO Travis Kalanick said in a joint statement:

“Today, UN Women and Uber are launching a partnership to work together around the world toward a shared vision of equality and women’s empowerment.

“We intend to invest in long-term programs in local communities where we live and work, as Uber commits to creating 1,000,000 jobs for women globally on the Uber platform by 2020.

“This important mission can only be accomplished when all women have direct access to safe and equitable earning opportunities.”
