The 15% at Davos

< Previous | Main | Next >

21st Jan 2014

If you're alive, you've heard - there's only 15% women in the official Davos list for 2014, down from 17% in 2013.  Let's be clear - in the communities the WEF creates like the Young Global Leaders and the Global Shapers, the percentage is closer to parity.  Interested in the debate? See these great articles by Anne-Marie Slaughter and David Yanofsky.

So the burden is on us.  What is Hub Culture doing about it?

We've set ourselves the challenge - can we increase the number of women interviewees above 15% this week?  We're inviting other media eyes on Davos to seek out and broadcast female voices. Every day - we'll post our ratio with a scorecard at the end. We want to be higher than 15%. Today, guess what?  Twenty Percent. Not so shabby.

We can't control who is here, but we can balance the conversation.

Who is with us? #womenindavos
