Uber Female Employees Confront CEO Kalanick over “Systemic Problem with Sexism” https://t.co/njNzDTgQ13
Kalanick has built a business through a leadership style that is more truculent than compassionate, more in-your-face than compromising. And it’s worked, at least to a certain degree, in that Uber’s global brand visibility has never been higher. Kalanick was even invited to be part of President Trump’s business advisory council; however, that backfired, as protests against the CEO mounted , with council members seeming complicit with Trump’s announced immigration ban. Kalanick felt compelled to resign and announced that decision in a memo to employees.
