This report outlines an assessment of Uber’s integration of the Sexual Misconduct and Violence Taxonomy into its system of receiving and accurately categorizing reports of sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, and sexual assault from users of its platform. Uber’s approach to using these data in the development of their 2019 United States Safety Report is also assessed.
The Spring 2019 edition ofThe Resource looks at the wide range of prevention activities happening all across the country! Opening with tips from Berkeley Media Studies Group on how to effectively communicate about prevention, this issue also includes:
- Four winners of RALIANCE's first-ever Honors Awards

We also take a look back at the success of this year's #30DaysofSAAM Instagram contest and asked advocates what changes they've seen since in their own programs #MeToo went viral. Lastly, check out four recent additions to NSVRC's library.
This document is a follow-up to a Taxonomy & Transparency Workshop hosted on March 5, 2019, in San Francisco, California, by Uber for representatives of a variety of companies. It contains lessons learned by Uber from implementing the Sexual Misconduct and Violence Taxonomy developed by NSVRC and the Urban Institute, and is split into two parts that give deep views of elements necessary for implementing the Taxonomy in a corporate context at scale:
- Why a scaled classification audit function is crucial to ensuring accurate, repeatable external reporting of safety incident data based on strong internal alignment on the definition of Taxonomy terms
- Training examples similar to those in use by Uber teams to classify incidents based on the Sexual Misconduct and Assault Taxonomy, and the importance of auditing safety incident data to ensure accurate, repeatable reporting.
