Default Uber director David Bonderman resigns from board following comment about women

More women on board of directors would mean 'more talking,' said Bonderman

Uber director David Bonderman has resigned from the company's board following a remark he made during an Uber staff meeting Tuesday that was widely seen as offensive to women, according to a source familiar with the matter.

The ill-timed remark came during an all-staff meeting to discuss of how the ride-services company would transform itself following a probe into sexual harassment at the company.
OR as I like to call it "Old white dude doesn't now how to stop mansplaining"

Hey, brother, there'd be more talking but also something good to look at, knowwhatimean?

Seriously though, I have only been following this peripherally. This is a different guy than the CEO who is out/on leave, yes? And this meeting was to discuss basically how to not be a sexist company, right? Does that count as irony?
