Arianna Huffington and Matt Cohler are stepping down from Uber's board of directors, according to a Wednesday announcement.

Why it matters: Both were closely involved in the company's tumultuous events in 2017.

Huffington often took the lead on Uber's sexual harassment and culture matters. Meanwhile, Cohler took over his firm Benchmark's board seat, after his business partner Bill Gurley participated in the ouster of former Uber CEO and co-founder Travis Kalanick.

  • Wednesday's exits follow that of Ryan Graves, the company's original CEO, in May.
