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.
