Explosive blog post details ?abhorrent? sexism at Uber

Explosive blog post details ‘abhorrent’ sexism at Uber

In a blog post published Sunday, former Uber engineer Susan Fowler Riggetti details her experiences working for the company. Sadly, given she's a female engineer working at a thrusting, big-name Silicon Valley startup, the experiences are exactly what you'd expect.

In the post, Riggetti details numerous instances of overt sexist behaviour. She reportedly sent evidence, including email and chat logs to HR, but ran into a brick wall multiple times. In the end, she says that her attempts to quietly report sexist behaviour were turned against her:

I forwarded this absurd chain of emails to HR, and they requested to meet with me shortly after. I don't know what I expected after all of my earlier encounters with them, but this one was more ridiculous than I could have ever imagined. The HR rep began the meeting by asking me if I had noticed that *I* was the common theme in all of the reports I had been making, and that if I had ever considered that I might be the problem. I pointed out that everything I had reported came with extensive documentation and I clearly wasn't the instigator (or even a main character) in the majority of them - she countered by saying that there was absolutely no record in HR of any of the incidents I was claiming I had reported (which, of course, was a lie, and I reminded her I had email and chat records to prove it was a lie). She then asked me if women engineers at Uber were friends and talked a lot, and then asked me how often we communicated, what we talked about, what email addresses we used to communicate, which chat rooms we frequented, etc. -  an absurd and insulting request that I refused to comply with. When I pointed out how few women were in SRE, she recounted with a story about how sometimes certain people of certain genders and ethnic backgrounds were better suited for some jobs than others, so I shouldn't be surprised by the gender ratios in engineering. Our meeting ended with her berating me about keeping email records of things, and told me it was unprofessional to report things via email to HR.

Beyond the reports to HR, Riggetti also details a company overrun with internal politics and management problems:

In the background, there was a game-of-thrones political war raging within the ranks of upper management in the infrastructure engineering organization. It seemed like every manager was fighting their peers and attempting to undermine their direct supervisor so that they could have their direct supervisor's job. No attempts were made by these managers to hide what they were doing: they boasted about it in meetings, told their direct reports about it, and the like.

Shortly after the blog post was published, Uber CEO Travis Kalanick issued a statement promising a (secret, internal) investigation into the matter, and reaffirmed Uber's committment to a equitable workplace where everyone isn't trying to stab each other in the back:

"I have just read Susan Fowler's blog. What she describes is abhorrent and against everything Uber stands for and believes in. It's the first time this has come to my attention so I have instructed Liane Hornsey our new Chief Human Resources Officer to conduct an urgent investigation into these allegations. We seek to make Uber a just workplace and there can be absolutely no place for this kind of behavior at Uber -- and anyone who behaves this way or thinks this is OK will be fired."

This isn't the first time that Uber has run into human resources problems within its internal teams and management. In 2014, an Uber exec famously suggested digging up dirt on journalists to discredit them. That statement came in response to a journalist who had accused Uber of sexism once again.

More recently, #DeleteUber trended on Twitter after Uber removed surge pricing at JFK airport during a taxi strike -- a strike that was in protest of President Trump's Muslim travel ban. The same hashtag is trending again tonight following Riggetti's blog post.

Solar-powered Africa ?never more possible and less expensive?: energy chief

Solar-powered Africa “never more possible and less expensive”:  energy chiefBy Maina Waruru ABU DHABI (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - A “solar revolution” is coming to Africa, comparable in scale and importance to the rapid surge in mobile phone use on the continent two decades ago, predicts the head of the International Renewable Energy Agency. Fast-dropping costs for solar power, combined with plenty of sun and a huge need for electricity on a continent where many are still without it, means solar has huge potential in Africa, said Adnan Amin, the director general of IRENA. “Africa’s solar potential is enormous,” he said in an interview with the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

The iPhone 8 will be good for more than just Apple

The iPhone 8 will be good for more than just Apple

It’s not just iPhone fans who are anxiously waiting for the iPhone 8 to arrive, an iPhone version that will be unlike anything Apple created so far. Apple suppliers that live and die by Apple’s orders are also going to profit from the iPhone 8’s popularity, including Apple’s primary iPhone assembler, a Taiwan-based company you may have heard of: Hon Hai or Foxconn.

A report in Bloomberg over the weekend said that Foxconn is riding the wave of “iPhone 8 expectations.”

Foxconn shares gained 29% last year, with optimism about Apple’s 10th anniversary iPhone helping the company reach a decade-high.

The Taiwanese company is expected to mass-produce the OLED iPhone 8 later this year, and an exclusivity deal will surely prop up the stock.

Bloomberg says Apple could sell 20 million to 23 million iPhones in China alone during the December 2017 quarter, according to estimates from Counterpoint Research, or 20% more than last year.

Apple accounts for half of Foxconn’s revenue, the report notes, and is seen as having played a “pivotal” role in the stock’s recent buoyancy. Even though the iPhone doesn't see the same kind of growth it used to enjoy, the iPhone 7 still delivered better than expected results last quarter. And the more iPhone Apple sells, the better it is for Foxconn.

Foxconn, meanwhile, isn’t necessarily happy to be just a supplier for Apple. The company is heavily investing in other areas, including robotics, virtual reality, artificial intelligence, and the revival of Sharp. All that happens without directly competing with its main client.

On top of that, Foxconn’s which obtained control of Sharp last year, will invest almost $9 million in an LCD factory that will make LCD displays by 2019 and nearly $2 billion into an OLED display factory which could provide screens for future iPhone models. Foxconn and Sharp are even considering building a screen facility in the US worth around $7 billion.

In other words, some of the iPhone money Foxconn receives every quarter will be used to drive innovation in various other tech fields, as Foxconn looks for other growth opportunities. And the iPhone 8, which is already expected to drive Apple’s next super-cycle, will be partly responsible for whatever comes out from Foxconn in the following years.
