Tina Tchen was quoted on November 12, 2018 in a Bloomberg article, “Uber edges closer to promise of data on sex assaults in vehicles,” which discussed Uber’s 53-page report that distinguishes 21 different categories of sexual misconduct and assault, with the hope of clarifying and increasing reports to the company. The article stated, “Just defining sexual assault and other types of sexual misconduct is a thorny issue for many companies and institutions. U.S. universities, for instance, have long faced a federal mandate to report the number of sexual assaults that occur on their campuses. However, since they decide for themselves what incidents to report, researchers have found that universities that are more attuned to the prevalence of sexual assault often report more incidents. Uber is bracing for the numbers on harassment to be startling when it releases them next year.”

Tchen added, “Reports are going to rise because right now this is vastly under-reported. You will see more people reporting. That counter-intuitively will be a good sign.”
