David Bonderman resigns from Uber board after making joke about women at company event on sexual harassment
Oh, Uber, you're beyond parody. ""Billionaire businessman David Bonderman, a member of Uber’s board, resigned Tuesday after making what he called an “inappropriate” comment about women at a company-wide meeting that was aimed at addressing the harassment of women and other unprofessional conduct within the company. The comment came as an interruption of fellow board member Arianna Huffington, who was explaining the benefits of having more female representation on Uber's board. “There’s a lot of data that shows when there’s one woman on the board, it’s much more likely that there will be a second woman on the board,” said Huffington, according to several people who heard the remarks. “Actually,” Bonderman interjected, “what it shows is, it’s much likely there'll be more talking.” “Oh, come on, David,” Huffington said, in between awkward laughs.""
