Billionaire businessman David Bonderman, a member of Uber’s board,
apologized Tuesday for 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.
At the event, Bonderman made a joke about women, saying that
adding female board members would make it “much more likely
there’ll be more talking,” said several people who heard the
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.
This company is beyond parody.
