1 Mins read

On 22 October 2020, Uber will host the second edition of the Tech for Safety Summit virtually amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The event that was inaugurated in 2019 in Nairobi seeks to catalyse change and conversation around our daily safety concerns. 

The summit seeks to put technology and innovation to the forefront to discuss and address the most pressing safety-related concerns which has been further complicated and exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic in Sub-Saharan Africa. 

Despite all the ways in which COVID-19 has changed how we live and care for each other, safety continues to be a top priority for Uber, not only for our riders and drivers but also for the broader communities.

Which is why we’re excited to again bring safety, technology and innovation to the forefront on 22 October 2020, with our second annual Tech For Safety Summit that will be held across Sub-Saharan Africa.

Uber Statement.

According to Uber, the safety of people across Africa is a priority that must be acted upon immediately in order to afford citizens the opportunity to enjoy their community and their country. The summit aims to redirect the constant ‘looking over our shoulders’ as we set our sights on a future that is safe, and attainable. 

The edition will virtually be held in Harare, Pretoria and will be followed with social media hashtag, #Tech4Safety.
