Travis Kalanick has resigned as the CEO of Uber.
Earlier this year, a former Uber engineer named Susan Fowler published a scathing account of her experience at the ride-hailing company. Fowler wrote that she was sexually harassed repeatedly by a colleague. She reported these incidents to Uber’s human resources department but to no avail.
In the wake of Fowler’s claims, Uber hired former Attorney General Eric Holder to undertake an investigation into Uber’s work culture. The results were recently announced, with Uber’s board overwhelmingly voted to adopt the recommendations. Kalanick took an indefinite leave of absence after the Holder investigation. And to the surprise of many, Kalanick announced his resignation as the company’s CEO today. He remains on the company’s board.
If you drive for Uber, what do you think of Kalanick’s resignation?
