Jun 14, 2017, 06:44
Venture capitalist David Bonderman resigned from Uber's board of directors on Tuesday, after apologizing for making a sexist remark during an all-staff meeting earlier in the day about reforming the company's culture. The company has been working to improve its image and internal procedures, but in a meeting on Tuesday, one Uber board member said that women talk too much, creating yet another mess for a company that has been publicly battling accusations of toxic misogyny within its highest ranks.
Bonderman, who is a founder of private equity firm TPG Capital, an Uber investor, shortly after wrote an email to Uber staff to apologize. Huffington responded by saying, "Oh, come on David".
"Having worked with the company for some months on the Holder report, I recognize the importance of implementing the requirements of the report", he said. It was inappropriate. I also want to apologize to all the Uber employees who were offended by the remark. "Therefore, I have made a decision to resign from Uber's board of directors, effective tomorrow morning", he said.
In the same meeting, the Uber board announced a leave of absence for CEO Travis Kalanick, who has always been grappling with criticisms of his leadership and workplace culture, and dealing with the death of his mother last month in a boating accident.
Holder and his law firm were retained by Uber back in February to investigate company practices after former Uber engineer Susan Fowlerpublished a blog post detailing what she described as sexual harassment and the lack of a suitable response by senior managers.
"Today at Uber's all-hands meeting, I directed a comment to my colleague and friend Arianna Huffington that was careless, inappropriate, and inexcusable".
Huffington also explained Kalanick would step down from the company's day-to-day operations to "properly mourn the death of his mother and build the qualities of leadership necessary to take Uber to the next level".
