Dara Khosrowshahi: Driving Change at Uber

On this podcast episode, the CEO of Uber talks with students on how choosing a career path based on people, not job titles, makes a difference.

When Dara Khosrowshahi fled Iran and arrived in the United States, he was 9 years old, did not speak fluent English, and was unfamiliar with the culture.

With the help of sports, Khosrowshahi assimilated — ultimately launching a business career. During a visit to Stanford Graduate School of Business, he talked about how he cultivated mentors and how he is approaching diversity and inclusion at Uber.
