Updated: 2015-01-26 13:10
The annual Davos meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF) concluded on Saturday. More than 1,500 business leaders and 40 heads of state or government attended the Jan 21-24 meeting to network and discuss big themes, from the price of oil to the future of the Internet.
If you look at the breakdown of Davos delegates, the top executives of the companies are nearly all men. WEF introduced a quota system to encourage female participation, which demanded that its 100 most important partners send one woman to the annual meeting for every four men. Here, let's take a look at some businesswomen at the World Economic Forum this year.
