And more women are represented at the World Economic Forum than in the most senior levels of government and business, according to Saadia Zahidi, who heads gender and employment initiatives for the forum.

"It's a rosier picture than what actually exists at the top," Ms. Zahidi said. The World Economic Forum hosts Young Global Leaders and Global Shapers, two groups with a combined 150 members under the age of 40, who together are made up of nearly 50 percent women. This has helped to lift the overall number at the forum, she added.
The World Economic Forum is also trying to change the makeup of conference attendees through its corporate partnerships with about 100 companies.
These strategic partners have agreed to include at least one employee in five of the other gender at Davos. If they cannot find one, that company must restrict its participation to four people, Ms. Zahidi says.
The percentage of women represented in this group has doubled to 20 percent since the World Economic Forum changed the rule, she added.
