Uber Director Resigns After Making A Sexist Comment

Uber director David Bonderman says he will be stepping down from his position after a sexist remark he made during a staff meeting was released. 

The meeting was set to discuss how the ride-services company plan to reinvent themselves after several investigations into sexual harassment at the company.

Uber board member Arianna Huffington said to the employees about how important it is to have more female voices on the board of directors.

"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."

In response, Bonderman replied with:

"Actually, what it shows is that it's much more likely to be more talking."

In the statement released for his resignation, he says he regrets his words calling them careless and inappropriate.

"I take full responsibility for that. I need to hold myself to the same standards that we're asking Uber to adopt."

His resignation comes on the heels of Uber CEO Travis Kalanick's indefinite leave.
