Examining Uber’s Use of the Sexual Misconduct and Violence Taxonomy and the Development of Uber’s United States Safety Report

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.

Helping Industries to Classify Reports of Sexual Harassment, Sexual Misconduct, and Sexual Assault

Helping Industries to Classify Reports of Sexual Harassment, Sexual Misconduct, and Sexual AssaultThis report describes the work of a joint project between the NSVRC and the Urban Institute, in which a team of staff from both agencies developed an improved taxonomy (a system of categorization) for reports of sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, and sexual assault received by Uber Technologies, Inc. (Uber), from users of Uber's ride-sharing and other app-driven services. This improved taxonomy helps Uber to more effectively categorize reports of these sexually violent experiences, which in turn helps Uber to better determine the most appropriate outreach and ultimate action taken in response to each report.

The report also discusses the implications of this improved taxonomy for Uber's creation of transparency reports for sexual violence, and ways that this taxonomy and its method of development can improve similar efforts in other businesses and industries.

Developing Culturally Responsive Approaches to Serving Diverse Populations: A Resource Guide  for Community-Based Organizations

From the National Research Center on Hispanic Children and Families

As communities become more culturally and linguistically diverse, community-based service organizations (CBOs) are called to do more to reduce disparities in access and use of important social services. An important strategy is developing cultural competency—behaviors, attitudes, and policies that enable CBOs to work effectively in cross-cultural situations. This resource guide identifies easily accessible resources on cultural competency that CBOs can use to become more responsive to the needs of their targeted populations, and to help attract funds to support their important work.

Issue 22: What's missing from the news on sexual violence? An analysis of coverage, 2011-2013

This publication explores how sexual violence is portrayed in the news and considers the implications of these portrayals for prevention advocates and journalists interested in discussing not just the details of sexual violence, but also how to end it. The findings lay the foundation for ongoing work to define more effective messages about sexual violence that can support prevention policies.

This work is part of a multi-year collaboration between the National Sexual Violence Resource Center and Berkeley Media Studies Group.
