Women Comprise Just 22% of World Economic Forum Attendees

(Bloomberg) -- Women will comprise 22 percent of the attendees at the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting in Davos this year, little changed from 21 percent last year. Still, it’s a marked improvement over 2014, when women made up just 15 percent of delegates. In may ways, the WEF breakdown mimics the broader global opportunity for women, where gender parity in pay and power is still probably a century away, according to an annual WEF study released last month.
