It has been hard not to notice that speaker after speaker here in Davos are men. Where are the women in these conversations?

This year, for the first time, the World Economic Forum introduced a gender quota that one in five delegates sent by strategic partners must be female. Women have never made up more than 17 percent of total attendees at the Forum. This is not surprising given that women hold less than 3 percent of Fortune 500 CEO positions.
