#GAReads | Putting an End to Conferences Dominated by White Men
Many business conferences are notable not only for the prominent people on stage, but also for those who are missing. For instance, at the World Economic Forum's annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland this week, fewer than 18% of the speakers are women. Women’s under-representation at such events gets a lot of attention, but people of color are also relatively rare on conference stages. For conference hosts, however, past performance need not be an indicator of future results.
