Women at Davos use social media to voice their opinion at the World Economic Forum


New data shows that women delegates are playing an increasingly prominent role in the public discussion from the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland. While only 17 percent of WEF delegates in Davos are women, they have accounted for more than a third of Davos delegate social media activity.

Isabelle Allen, KPMG’s Global Head of Sales & Markets: “Davos is changing and becoming more diverse, there is an appetite among the public to take part in these debates. Delegates are paying attention to this social media activity, and I see a great opportunity for a better informed dialogue at the Annual Meeting.”

On day two of the World Economic Forum, topics including Young Global Leaders (#YGL), David Cameron (#Cameron) and Health (#Health) were the most popular trends emerging from female conversations.
