As you will guess, it is not something I attend every weekend, but on Friday night I found myself at 'The Forbes' 100 most influential women dinners in Davos. An event not for the faint hearted.
Women attending this annual Alpine schmoozefest of the global super-elite find themselves in a peculiar place: They are members of that elite -- but relatively recent members with a minority status.
To "enhance" the dinner conversation, each table was given a discussion topic to debate over the course of the evening. Our topic was: the role of women in leadership.
