Overview of the numbers and % of women at the top.  Numbers do matter, without critical mass there's no culture change. Given group think's role in the economic crisis - I think culture change is critical.

Because it's still a man's world?  But how relevant is Davos these days anyway?

Erika Watson's curator insight, February 18, 2013 12:15 PM

Excerpt: "Anger is perceived differently depending on who is expressing it: for a woman it is ‘hysteria’ and for a man a ‘sign of authority’. These cultural norms lead to a quest for power for power’s sake: the power to “be”, as opposed to the “feminine” model of power meaning ‘to do’ and ‘be able to do’.
