And that's what Uber is doing in the scandal which has gripped it. That involves allegations of sexual harassment. The crisis has been kicked off by former employee Susan J. Fowler.
An engineer, she posted on her blog a detailed account of how she and other females were allegedly sexually harassed at Uber. She included in that "manifesto" the alleged negative consequences when she reported all this to human resources. Here is Fowler's blog post.
The model Uber is embracing to manage the crisis is that which was effective at 21st Century Fox during the allegations that former Fox News head Roger Ailes instituted a kind of "put out" to succeed in your career MO. At 21st Century Fox, Rupert Murdoch and his two sons brought in a law firm to investigate the contentions. Among the results has been that the entertainment corporation and Ailes parted company. There were also settlements with the alleged victims.
Uber has contracted with lawyers Eric Holder and Tammy Albarran to invesigate. They are partners at BigLaw firm Covington & Burling. Here are the details from the New York Post.
In addition, Uber's human resources is also investigating. So is Uber board member Arianna Huffington.
Since this scandal is high profile, it could be a game-changer in how females are treated in the tech sector.
