Amid a swirl of scandals, three senior women executives at Uber held a call on Tuesday about the beleaguered company's plans to improve a workplace seen as hostile and sexist, its search for a No. 2 to help its reflexively combative CEO Travis Kalanick, and ways it will treat its drivers better.

Drive first and ask questions later has its limits.
