Getting women into leadership positions is going to be one of the most powerful forces behind globalization in the next decades, according to Amy Weaver, of Salesforce, speaking to DW from Davos.
As the world's rich meet for the World Economic Forum in Davos, their festivities are as usual heralded by the Oxfam report on global inequality — a highly controversial study that should be taken with a grain of salt.
The Global Shapers are a network of more than 6,000 young people working to address local, regional and global challenges. Around 50 of them get invited to the World Economic Forum each year. DW spoke to some of them.
Only one in five participants at the World Economic Forum in Davos is a woman. Female role models are desperately needed to close the gender gap in politics and business.
Few would argue that this is still a men's world, in which women are often denied equal opportunities. A report by the World Economic Forum is now providing fresh evidence for that, but also sees some progress.
