Issues surrounding gender equality, or rather the lack of it, are being debated at the World Economic Forum in Davos. DW's Ben Fajzullin talks to SAP executive board member Adaire Fox-Martin.
The share of women participating in the World Economic Forum in Davos has never been bigger, and numerous topics are scheduled to address the situation of women. Does this come on the back of the #MeToo debate?
Female leaders steer big corporations and major economies. But at the World Economic Forum they are still grossly underrepresented, with only 20 percent of participants being women, reports Manuela Kasper-Claridge.
The World Economic Forum has said that it will take 217 years until women have equal pay and representation in the workplace. It's the second year that the organization has recorded worsening economic inequality.
Prospects for workplace gender equality have slipped back to 2186 after a dramatic slowdown in progress, the WEF stated in its latest report on the issue. But some developing and emerging markets have made progress.
