Kollabora CEO Nora Abousteit Says The Gender Ratio At Davos Should Be '50/50'

Nora Abousteit just pointed out the elephant in the room at the World Economic Forum: Where are all the women?

The founder and CEO of Kollabora, a website for "DIY enthusiasts" to meet and collaborate, did not hold back about the lack of women at Davos when she spoke with HuffPost Live's Roy Sekoff.

"I just think there should be a very hard quota -- 50/50," Abousteit said. "Just to make sure that there's enough women there." With over 2,600 attendants from 140 countries around the world, women only make up 17 percent of the guests. We couldn't agree more with Abousteit.

"Women do have more difficulties to get to the higher positions, so give them a chance to get higher visibility," she said told Sekoff.

Sounds about right to us.
