A Frankfurt court earlier this month instituted a temporary injunction against Uber from offering car-sharing services across Germany. San Francisco-based Uber, which allows users to summon taxi-like services on their smartphones, offers two main services, Uber, its classic low-cost, limousine pick-up service, and Uberpop, a newer ride-sharing service, which connects private drivers to passengers - an established practice in Germany that nonetheless operates in a legal grey area of rules governing commercial transportation.

This is a great opportunity for CWBS members to learn more about the company and to chat with the women of Uber in a more informal setting. Please note that we will be accepting students on a first-come, first-served, basis as capacity is limited. We encourage you to RSVP and confirm your availability as soon as possible. Please also note that we will be traveling down to the offices as a group on Friday.
