Uber board member Ariana Huffington says she spent over an hour at Uber today discussing the issues women are facing at the company. Her visit to the ride-hailing company comes after a former employee revealed she and other women suffered sexual harassment while working there. In her note Huffington said:
Travis spoke very honestly about the mistakes he’s made — and about how he wants to take the events of the last 48-hours to build a better Uber. It was great to see employees holding managers accountable. I also view it as my responsibility to hold the leadership team’s feet to the fire on this issue.
The key word there is “accountable.” So the bigger question is: Will those who allegedly turned a blind eye to complaints—and actively sought to suppress employees who spoke up—be fired?
